This high school principle, in attempts to make graduation, lined the campus driveway with photos of class of 2020.
One of the groups that have taken a hard hit due to the pandemic is students. From major disruption in studies to being stuck in hostels to graduating without a convocation. They have had to deal with a lot.
However, this principle from a high school in Florida, in attempts to make their graduation special, has lined the campus driveway with photos of class of 2020.
This is a difficult time for everyone. Beautiful gestures like these are what keeps us going during the difficult times.
Students and teenagers around the world are missing out on special moments such as proms and graduations. While this may not seem like a big deal to some, these students are missing out on experiences that they will never be able to get back.
Hence, Poplar Springs High School in Graceville’s principal’s attempts to honor her students' achievements is commendable.
All 30 graduating seniors will have their picture displayed on the school's driveway.
The principal simply couldn't let her students' achievements go unrecognized. So, she set up a virtual meeting with the photographer who took the seniors' portraits and organized to have the students' images enlarged and printed.
She told fox news,
“[The students are] missing a lot of the memorable moments that we all hold near and dear to our hearts throughout our whole lives.” She added, “People who don't even have students here, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi [...] have driven over just to drive through and see and honor our students.”
The principal hopes that the students will cherish the memory for the rest of their lives. She said,
“Instead of remembering I didn't get the end to my senior year I wanted, they'll remember my picture was right there and my grandma saw it, and my dad saw it, and my mom saw it. I got my picture made by my banner and they'll bring back a smile to their face instead of an empty spot.”
Hopefully, this will help the students get through this difficult time since its still uncertain when the world will come back to normal.
