Open Letter to Class of 2021
Class of 2021:
We are incredibly honored to acknowledge the graduating class of 2021. This past year has tested you in unimaginable ways. Around this time last year, you left school one last time to join your families in lockdown. Covid suspended our entire Southern way of life, rocking our communities. You returned to school in the fall to uncertainty, but your spirit never wavered. Class of 2021, you are champions. You have faced virtual and altered in-person learning, mastered the art of quarantine, and survived your senior year. Many of you have sacrificed your last homecoming, pep rallies, and senior traditions. However, your hearts still beat with pride for your school, team, and class. You are resilient. As you near graduation and the next stage of your life appears, face it in confidence that there is no force powerful enough to stop you. You are the class that conquered!
