On behalf of the Senior Classes of 2020, I am writing this petition. The chance to have the precious memories, many of us have from our senior year, has been snatched away from them. And because they fall into a gap, they do not qualify as children on the stimulus package.
As a parent of a senior, I’ve had the misfortune of seeing firsthand how traumatic this event has been for our kids. Just like any teenager, my son was really anticipating his senior year. I’ve observed the idea about Student Debt Forgiveness, which is a great idea. However, with all that has been taken for them, why not grant money for each 2020 senior to use towards college or a certificate program? Or a type of Senior Coronavirus Stimulus or Scholarship? We have so many unanswered questions about their futures. What will happen to the Salutatorians that were a mere point from Valedictorian ranking that will now not be able to bridge that gap, due to the leniency of grading? And what will happen to many sport athletes that will not be able to pad their statistics in order to qualify for scholarships?
This has affected millions of graduating students across our nation. I know this seems small in light of all that has happened so far with COVID-19, but it is a problem that needs to be addressed. The graduating class of 2020 began life amidst a national tragedy, 9/11/01. And now they are starting out on their path to adulthood with another. I ask you to please help by giving funding to help these students that are already missing prom, senior day, and senior sports. But worse of all, graduation!!

 


Sincerely,
A heartbroken senior mom
