Senior Awards 2020
As with every event this year, the annual Senior Awards presentation was an unusual one. In normal times, seniors are honored with an end-of-the-year banquet and presented with certificates and scholarships for their years of hard work through high school. This year, with schools closing in March and social distancing rules in place, the banquet unfortunately had to be canceled. That didn't, however, stop more than 70 students from being recognized for their dedication to academics, leadership, community service, the arts and more. Students receiving awards were invited to a drive-by ceremony where principal Keith Schenker and Guidance Counselor Nick DiPaolo presented them with a certificate or plaque, and in many cases a check, thanks the generous support of many families, organizations and local businesses.
While this year's awards didn't come with the usual pomp and circumstance, the modified ceremony allowed the contributions of many outstanding students in the Class of 2020 to still be recognized.
