Hart High School 2020 graduates collected their caps and gowns on Wednesday morning to prepare for their upcoming drive-through graduation.
“For seniors, we want to make it particularly special for them because it’s their last day of high school essentially,” said Jason d’Autremont, principal of Hart High School.
Each senior student was given a lock to personalize as they liked, and then latched to a section of chainlink fence at Hart High School, memorializing the trial and tribulations of the class of 2020, “forever locked at Hart.”
“Don’t let this year or how we ended this year dash any of their dreams or goals to still strive to be the best,” said d’Autremont of the graduates. “Remember what they learned in high school and carry that with them into the future.”
“Because this year has been unlike any other and we wanted to really show and give them something that they can remember that would be special for them,” said Elizabeth Wilson, assistant principal of Hart High School. “It was important for us to be able to do something like that for them.”
Students were able to return books and equipment borrowed during the school year, pick up senior awards, caps and gowns, take commemorative graduation photos, and contribute to a special memorial artwork that the seniors helped build.
“Love what you do, because it makes every day worthwhile,” Wilson advised the 2020 graduates.
