May 29 is High School Senior Day, Mayor Proclaims
To say this has been a weird school year would be an understatement, and many senior-year traditions has been casualties of the COVID-19 crisis. While it can’t make up for members of the class of 2020 missing their walk across the stage, Mayor Terry L. Donahue has proclaimed May 29, 2020, High School Senior Day in North Liberty.
“The end of high school is a significant milestone, and we honor all North Libertarians concluding their journeys under these unique circumstances,” said Mayor Terry L. Donahue. “We congratulate you on your accomplishments, and wish you success whatever you are headed, whether entering the workforce, enrolling at a college, university or trade school, engaging in volunteerism, taking a gap year or finding your own way.”
The proclamation, in full below, was read at the May 26, 2020, city council meeting. The City of North Liberty, its elected officials, staff and residents wish this year’s high-school seniors well, wherever they’re headed next.
Whereas, the end of high school is a significant milestone in every student’s journey; and
Whereas, the circumstances of the year 2020 means high school seniors have received less traditional pomp; and
Whereas, we wish to congratulate each of them individually on and highlight collectively their accomplishments; and
Whereas, every student in North Liberty has traveled their own path; and
Whereas, North Liberty’s students have attended high schools throughout our wider community; and
Whereas, these high school seniors will remember all the times had together; and
Whereas, North Liberty’s students have myriad paths spread before them; and
Now, therefore, I, Mayor Terry L. Donahue, proclaim Friday, May 29, 2020, in North Liberty to be High School Senior Day to honor those North Libertarians concluding their high school education, and wish them success wherever they are headed, whether entering the workforce, enrolling at a college, university or trade school, engaging in purposeful volunteerism, taking a gap year or finding their own way.
