Comin’ through— it’s the class of 2020, down a new kind of memory lane.
One principal in Florida has gone the extra mile to celebrate the high school's graduating seniors amid the coronavirus pandemic, which has upended time-honored teenage traditions like proms and graduations.
Though the Poplar Springs High School building in Graceville has been closed during the COVID-19 crisis, Principal Farica West felt compelled to celebrate the 30 students graduating this year in a big way.
“They’re missing a lot of the memorable moments that we all hold near and dear to our hearts throughout our whole lives,” West said.
Determined, the principal reached out to the photographer whotook the twelfth graders’ senior portraits, and had the photos enlarged and printed to line both sides of the school’s scenic driveway.
