A High School Graduation ceremony is a rite of passage that occurs only once in a lifetime for students, as they close the chapter on their High School years and embark upon their college careers. It is a time of accomplishment, a time of reflection, a time of hope for a promising future and a celebration for all who have worked so hard to earn their High School diploma. Although the COVID-19 pandemic may have altered High School graduations as we know them, Westchester County Government wants to make sure that all hopes are not dashed for a 2020 graduation ceremony for Westchester County’s seniors.
We are asking all community leaders, teachers, parents, grandparents and siblings to record a short video on your smart phone to say congratulations and best of luck to the High School Senior in your life. The video does not have to be long, and it is an easy way to get the entire community involved in a virtual graduation ceremony. Our High School seniors deserve to hear your words of praise, and know you are proud of all they have achieved.
If you would like to participate, send your video to Communications@WestchesterGov.com. Eventually, we will have a string of congratulatory messages from citizens all over the County, in honor of Westchester County’s graduating class of 2020. The deadline to submit a video is June 6.
