The Class of 2020 took on an interesting, and honestly devastating year. As the rest of us from the Class of 2019 and before, understand how important senior year is. It is the last year with the friends you made before you all go your separate ways, it’s your year to go to prom, and most importantly, it’s the year you graduate from a 4 year long chapter of learning and growth.
Social distancing guidelines and the laws laid out by the state of Ohio, made providing a normal graduation impossible. There have been many ways cities and schools have been honoring the Class of 2020, but Warrensville took it to the next level. Warrensville Heights High School partnered with Q Audio Visual and Landerhaven create a drive-in style graduation that the Class of 2020 will never forget. Parents, families and friends, all welcomed.
With two 9x16 LED screens built and ran by the QAV team, in the parking lot of Landerhaven, the graduates, families and friends watched a pre-filmed video of the students walking the stage and receiving their well-earned diploma. It was a sight to see.
According to the WKYC article,
“School leaders say the students have the skills, talents and abilities to go far. So even though their senior year was cut short, their dreams, won’t be. Warrensville Heights Superintendent Donald Jolly II says he is incredibly proud of the sendoff the seniors are getting and wishes everyone success.”
“To the Class of 2020, you are the best and brightest in the state of Ohio and we are so proud that you are part of our great alumni family of the Warrensville Heights Tigers. One team, one vision, one goal, we all we got,” says Jolly.
The Class of 2020 had one of the hardest years in recent times, they deserve their moment to walk across the stage and be recognized for their hard work and dedication.
