Why this petition matters

Started by Barrett Houska

To our fellow seniors—
We understand the dissatisfaction that Westminster’s last minute decision to forbid parents from attending our long awaited graduation has caused us and our families. The Class of 2020 has already lost so much and has anticipated this capstone event for several months.

We understand that the health and safety of the graduates, faculty and staff, and our families is of the utmost importance. However, with proper guidelines in place like the use of masks and social distancing, there is no reason why each graduate should not be allowed their two guests. Failure to allow guests in attendance will only create an unsafe environment as families will congregate on the little sidewalk space on the base of the hill.

There is no reason that Westminster 2020 Seniors must give up their final celebration for a poor imitation of what should be a joyous event with families. Sign this petition to indicate that we will not allow Westminster to strip our final moment away from us. Friends and Family we ask that you sign this petition in recognition of our achievement and accomplishment to show your voice in support for our families to be in attendance this weekend at our graduation ceremony.
