For many high school students, senior year means competing in final games, performing in school plays, dancing at proms and spending quality time with friends before tossing caps at graduation.
Now, the class of 2020 faces a much different experience. In-person classes have been suspended, sports seasons have been canceled, and it's uncertain if many school events, including dances and graduation, will go on as planned.
During these uncertain times, several Tri-State students offered some much-needed words of encouragement to their fellow classmates.
"Dear Class of 2020," a video tribute to all students facing these challenges, features students from Elder, St. Ursula Academy, Lawrenceburg High School, Moeller and more.
Uploaded by Elder High School student Adam Duwel, the video also includes students from around the country reflecting on the last three years of their high school experiences and their hopes for the future.
