The Class of 2020 deserves their voices to be heard. An estimated 10 million graduates are suppose to graduate in 2020. Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, many commencement addresses, graduations, and graduating events have been postponed. Furthermore, schools have been transitioning into online events, virtual graduations, drive by graduations and drive up graduations. In addition, many schools across the country aren’t planning on rescheduling events like prom, six flags, and other graduating events. All graduates of the Class 2020 deserve what they earned. The Class of 2020 have watched the Class 2017, 2018 and 2019 graduate and have their events. Moreover, the class of 2020 is going to see their friends in the Class of 2021, 2022 and 2023 graduate and have their events. The Class of 2020 deserve everything that the previous classes have done and the future classes as well. The first week of August should be know as “Graduate Week” across the country. In addition, all graduates will be able to partake in all events without being fired from work or written up. I urge our lawmakers to have our graduating students to be able to take time off from work, (still receive pay), so that they can be able to participate in their graduating events. During this week in August, all graduates can graduate, have their commencement addresses, and their graduating events. Furthermore, COVID-19 will not be a factor in August. Already, local and state governments are already opening up. We will prevail over COVID-19. The Class of 2020 cannot be forgotten. So, please call you lawmakers and urge them to pass legislation that will benefit the class of 2020.
