On Friday, May 1, the Jesuit High School community kicked off a month of celebration for its Class of 2020 seniors with the first-ever Twilight Car Parade.
Members of the Class of 2020 and their families made their way slowly through campus, flying the school's green-and-gold as well as their new college colors. Faculty and staff lined up (15 feet apart) along the campus route and cheered excitedly as they learned where their students would be attending college next fall.
Expressions of love and gratitude radiated between the seniors, families, faculty, and staff. Handwritten signs and spirited music greeted seniors as they navigated campus and reconnected with their friends and mentors. Seniors waved to their admirers throughout the route, happy to see many friends in person for the first time in almost two months. At the end of the route, seniors received special yard signs marking their impending graduation from Jesuit High.
The parade offered a celebratory moment in the face of the isolation and challenges these past few months. At the Twilight Parade, these 225 seniors were reminded that no distance can ever really come between them. We wish the Class of 2020 blessings and all good things in all good time! See more photos.
