Senior Shout-outs: Honoring Our High School Graduates During Covid-19


Abbie Whitney. 

By Jessie Eden

While graduation will be a bit different for the Class of 2020, the community is embracing creative ways to honor Fort Thomas seniors.

In doing our part, we have collected as many senior 'shout-outs' as we can to recognize the many seniors who are missing out on a traditional graduation.

The High School graduates below include Highlands High School and Newport Central Catholic grads. Graduates from both Highlands High School are organized alphabetically by the first initial of their first names. Highlands grads are grouped together and Newport Central Catholic grads are grouped together.

In hopes of further honoring our graduates, we are seeking a sponsor for our print version of Fort Thomas Living so we can print a full spread to recognize these 2020 grads. Please contact us at JessicaCeden@gmail.com if you have an interest in getting this done for our area seniors.


NOTE:
If we have missed your senior, please email me at JessicaCeden@gmail.com and we'll add them!

Hats off to you, Seniors! Congratulations!
