The Class of 2020 has watched plans for a celebratory senior season vanish before their eyes with the global spread of COVID-19. But The Bolles School is making sure these students receive the commemoration they deserve.
The School launched a new web page “Celebrating Bolles Seniors.” The page includes short reflections from Bolles seniors, recent news stories about their accomplishments, photo galleries of important senior gatherings from the 2019-20 school year and information about athletic commitment ceremonies and lifetime letter achievements. The school plans to unveil future surprises for students on the page as the year draws to a close. Images from the page are being shared through Bolles’ official social media accounts, putting senior students further out into the spotlight.
The school hasn’t decided if it plans to cancel graduation, but it wanted to make sure its seniors were recognized.
“Students in the Class of 2020 are facing an unprecedented senior year and we wanted to make sure they know how much we appreciate them and this situation,” said Bolles President and Head of School Tyler Hodges. “The Bolles Class of 2020 will go down in history as one of our community’s most resilient, adaptable and empathetic group of seniors. Despite the shortcomings and challenges the second semester of their senior year presented, these students have risen above and beyond – showing all of us how to live fully by The Bolles Way: Pursuing excellence through courage, integrity and compassion.”
