Virtual Senior Recognition Ceremony

In a large collaborative effort, Central Academy seniors and staff produced our first ever Virtual Senior Recognition Ceremony!

It is an informal parade of accolades, recognition, celebrations, humor, gratitude, and love. We are so proud of the Class of 2020, not only for all they have accomplished at Academy over the years (some have attended Academy for 5 – 6 years!) but for how they have responded to the call to participate in this project.  In this, the toughest two months of my 31 years as an educator, the Senior Class of 2020 has buoyed my spirits and sustained my optimism with their grace and wit.

This video demonstrates the power of opportunity.  Seniors were invited to create 10 – 30 second stage walk videos.  In the face of enormous disappointment, many of them stepped up and stepped in to participate in this production.  About 150 people worked on the project.  Not everybody chose participate for a variety of reasons. But everyone’s name was included the video and their pictures are included in the print program that they will receive in the mail soon. (Because the video is published on YouTube, we requested permission from students or guardians to include named pictures of students in the video.)

I am so proud to present the wonderful men and women of the Class of 2020!
