Association House High School Faculty Create Caravan to Celebrate 2020 Graduates
In-person graduations have been canceled and for many, celebrations have been limited to digital celebrations. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Chicago celebrities highlighted graduates across the area in a TV special, but that still does not highlight the bond shared by Association House High School faculty and our students, and the opportunity for many of our graduates to celebrate this significant achievement.
Acknowledging the void and lack of options for a formal celebration, our teachers and administration started the AHHS Graduation Caravan. The trip across the city celebrated our graduates, allowed our staff to provide kind words and students to have the backdrop for a perfect photo with their cap, gown, and diploma.
“Every year graduation day is something that our ENTIRE school looks forward to,” said Jemina Lyle, AHHS YS3 Mentor and Students in Transitional Living Liaison. “This year it’s no different and we’ve worked really hard to make it so much more special for our students because of the climate and the circumstances we are all in.”
