Most of us have fond memories of our final days of high school or college.
Those warm spring days that preceded graduation ceremonies were a time to revel in a job well done, and to gaze out at an exciting new world full of possibilities. Sure, there were some tinges of uncertainty as we looked ahead to a new journey, but that period of our lives was generally awash with hope for most of us.
For the class of 2020, the experience is shaping up to be anything but ordinary. Plans for graduation ceremonies are up in the air, and these final days of school are unfolding in a time of isolation. The uncertainty looms a little larger, and the excitement and hope may not be shining as brightly on the horizon.
Despite the general sense of uncertainty in the air, there is no doubt the Class of 2020 will draw upon its collective pool of ingenuity and intellect to endure these times and thrive in the brighter days ahead. We at the Johnson City News & Neighbor would like to salute the Class of 2020, and wish you all the best in the future.
