With help from the Kennett Education Foundation, Kennett High School teachers and administrators got a chance to surprise the graduating seniors with congratulatory lawn signs, writes Fran Maye for the Daily Local News.
Volunteers and members of the foundation placed the signs on the lawns of all 326 members of the school’s 129th graduating class.
The signs, which were funded by a donation from the KEF, sported Kennett’s blue color and featured the school’s “K” logo. The text – “Kennett Education Foundation Congratulates the Class of 2020” – was also written in Spanish on the reverse side.
The school printed additional signs to be placed at various locations around the town to remind residents about the seniors’ important milestone.
KHS principal Dr. Jeremy Hritz was glad the school had an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the seniors.
“We are very disappointed for our seniors for the way their year has been disrupted,” said Hritz. “Honoring them with the yard signs is a way for us to let them know we are thinking about them and that we care about them.”
