As this last school year ends, these graduates will begin their journeys into a new world. While the graduation ceremony may be no different from many others, these high school careers have been anything but ordinary. The Covid-19 pandemic interfered with any chance they had for what was considered a normal high school career. Halls where students would socialize or run to class turned into zoom links and chat rooms. Students went from sitting in a desk in a classroom with their peers to sitting alone in the comfort of their bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens, etc. Clubs, teams, organizations, and events all happened behind a screen.
It has been over two years since the pandemic began and these students’ high school careers were changed forever. However, they have persevered and adapted. Now they look forward to graduation and new opportunities. As graduates decide to pursue a degree, enter the workforce, go to trade school, or join the military, their lives are just beginning.
We will talk about these dreams and possibilities with our guests this Friday on Noon Edition.
