Graduation
Simply Selles by David Selles

Pass Herald Reporter
The community of the Crowsnest Pass continues to surprise me.

This past weekend, as many are aware, would’ve been the grad ceremonies for this year’s Grade 12 graduating class.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, these graduates were unable to have the same ceremonies as previous graduating classes and were poised to miss out on a great celebration, that is until parents and the community stepped up to the plate.

A parade down main street in Blairmore gave these students the chance to feel the love and support they would’ve felt had this pandemic not happened.

It was amazing seeing all the videos posted online after the parade and seeing how special it was for the students to still have a chance to celebrate.

I remember my high school grad vividly.

I wore a white suit, a top hat and used my Opa’s cane to complete my look.

The weeks leading up to my grad were exciting.

I knew the time was almost here that I would be able to walk across the stage and be able to say I completed high school.

Sure, the speeches that follow can seem repetitive and boring at times but it’s another way that people show love and support to the graduating classes.

I’m glad to see the community stepping up in this way to celebrate the graduating class of 2020.

Graduating high school is a major accomplishment and every student who does deserves recognition for it.

Here’s to the graduating class of 2020 for a job well done.

Not many people can say they graduated during a global pandemic but you all managed to.

Congratulations to all the students and good luck in wherever life takes you next.
