UTICA N.Y.- Graduations may have been postponed or delayed this year, but that didn't stop Utica Notre Dame from recognizing their class of 2020 Friday afternoon.
The School honored their 47 seniors at the Ben Rizzo Football Field at Notre Dame High School.
These seniors didn't get a senior prom, senior trip, or "normal" graduation among other things a High School senior would hope for.
Even though their senior year was cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Notre Dame Class of 2020 Salutatorian Hannah Bushey says no matter what happens, life goes on.
"Life doesn't always go as planned." said Bushey. "You will be met with disappointment, with pain. But in the midst of all that, you will also be met with light too. That rang true when we were grieving our senior year, and a parade of teachers and staff showed up at our doorsteps to personally deliver flowers, balloons, and yard signs."
Bushey will be attending the University of Rochester majoring in Biomedical Engineering.
The class Valedictorian Danielle Cresci will be attending Boston College to study Neonatal Nursing.
Congratulations to all the 2020 Utica Notre Dame graduates!
