I realized that the graduating class of 2023 started their High School experience while we were in a pandemic. This graduating class has endured a lot of ups and downs. From online learning to trying to play "catch up" to obtain college scholarships. It's been a difficult road for these seniors, and I wish them nothing but the best! The viral video below makes me emotional in more ways than one. This senior not only endured a pandemic but the loss of his mother. I can't even imagine. I had to share his story.
Congratulations to those graduating this year. You deserve every single success in life.
