Niles High School Class of 2020 surprised with billboard
NILES, Mich.-- The class of 2020 wont get to walk the stage, or have their names called in person, but at Niles High School, that’s not stopping them from getting their seniors the recognition they deserve.
“So we thought, what we can do with top ten? Then we thought what can we do for all of our seniors? So we came up with the billboard," said Niles High School principal, Molly Brawley.
The billboard is made up of every senior in the class of 2020 with larger photos of this year’s top 10 seniors.
The billboard is just the beginning of the celebrations for Niles High Seniors.
Monday, 30 teachers made 177 stops and dropped off personalized signs to seniors as well.
To senior class president, David Haynes, this is the support every senior needs.
“Seeing all their efforts, like the billboard, and the sings that were delivered today. The words of encouragement through emails and during our class schedules and virtual meetings shows that they really care. That they want to continue our learning with us. It’s just nice to see that they're going beyond their way to show effort for the class of 2020," said Haynes.
Right now, the school plans on having a virtual graduation ceremony.
If the fight against COVID-19 improves throughout the coming days, they are hoping to have an in person ceremony in either June or July.
