Empower 2020 Seniors started this petition to 2020 High School Graduates

As a 2020 graduate, I would like to start a petition in order for the state to provide enough funds and/or waive any tuition fees held accountable by 2020 High School Graduates. In the second half of my senior year, I lost more money than I can count for events/trips that I should be experiencing my senior year and never got the opportunity to. There are countless things that not only I, but a majority of the seniors were looking forward to but never got to experience. This list includes; prom, grad-bash, graduation and many more.

As I stepped closer to my graduation date, two weeks prior to the only chance I will get walking the stage, the state of Florida decided to cancel the in-person graduation. I am not only devastated, but I feel like I lost the only chance of feeling like a senior in high school. As college approaches, I think of all the money I could have saved and put into other necessary things for my education. The state is not thinking ahead but only ruining things in the present. It is only in everyone's advantage if they decide to at least give us the first year tuition free for any student wherever they decide to go. 2020 seniors did not cause Covid-19, so we should not be penalized for it.
