Saluting Our Seniors During This Pandemic
At a time when hundreds of thousands of high school seniors nationwide would be walking across the stage to receive their diplomas, the students, their parents, teachers, and school faculty are still coming to terms with our current reality. Graduations and celebrations have all but been postponed or cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, this does not erase all the hard work of these students during their 13 years in school leading up to high school commencement. Naperville Community Television is proud to offer a platform for “saluting our seniors” locally, celebrating all that the graduating class of 2020 has accomplished.
From homecoming to fall football games to school performances, hundreds of local seniors have shared with us photos and videos capturing some of their favorite memories from earlier this year. Others show how they’re making the best of the stay-at-home order, where they’re excited to be going to college in the fall, and some are even showing off their prom attire!
