Senator Ritchie Offers Salute To 2020 HS Seniors

State Senator Patty Ritchie is offering senior salute to the 2020 high school classes and asked people to submit photos to her website

From Senator Ritchie.

High school graduation is one of the biggest milestones of a young person’s life. This year, we’ve been taught that no matter how much you might plan, you can’t always predict what life is going to throw your way.

While I know many of your hearts are breaking over the fact that you could not take part in many of the traditions so special to senior year, I hope you take comfort in the fact that you, the Class of 2020, are making history.

Each and every one of you serves as an example of resiliency and adaptability. I know that both of these qualities and the incredible lessons you’ve learned this year will help guide you on your journey to success in the future.

Each of you have worked so hard to make it to this pivotal point in your lives. While senior year wasn’t exactly as you’ve imagined it, I hope you know you deserve to celebrate this moment—and nothing can take it away from you. To the Class of 2020, congratulations. I couldn’t be prouder of all you’ve accomplished and can’t wait to see what you do next.

PS, to submit a student to be featured in my "Senior Salute," go to the senator's s website.
