Help Us Salute 2020 Acadiana Area Graduates
All of our lives have been basically turned upside down over the last few weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic. We've had to change the way we live our lives significantly to help flatten the curve and ensure a future where we can get back to normal life.
But, of course, there have been tremendous sacrifices along the way. A lot of people have missed out on milestone celebrations and that's been really difficult to handle.
We thought we might be able to help out one group just a little -- our 2020 graduates. But we'll need your help to shine a beacon on them.
Most high school and college graduates won't get to walk for commencement ceremonies in May as is custom. Instead, they'll be hoping for a rescheduled date this summer or fall. Some won't be able to make it at all and won't get this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
We figured a small gesture would be to highlight our amazing and talented 2020 graduates with a salute. And that's where we need your help.
We've created a short form for you to fill out which includes the graduate's name, school and a short message for them. Also, include a photo of the graduate.
Submissions will be accepted until Wednesday, April 29.
We'll put together a nice photo gallery to celebrate and salute our 2020 graduates and that will be shared on our website here and across all of our social media platforms in early May.
Thanks in advance for helping us raise up and celebrate our bright stars of tomorrow.
