A Salute to Concord’s Class of 2020

For high school seniors, graduation can be bittersweet. The end of the school year brings the excitement of growing up and moving on, but it can also represent the end of an era.

For the Class of 2020, the year has been an especially poignant one. With the onset of the COVID19 pandemic and stay at home orders in place orders for most of their last semester, seniors have been deprived of so many of the traditional events and rites of passage that celebrate of this special time in their lives; things like the prom, graduation ceremony and simply being together. Most of us can’t imagine what that would be like. 

Besides the hard work and dedication required to reach this milestone, the Class of 2020 deserves to be recognized for their strength and resiliency. You have accomplished a big goal during a most difficult time, so, congratulations to all of you. Go out and pursue your dreams but remember to stay connected to family, friends, your school -- and to Concord. We are proud of you and wish you all the best.
