Under a beautiful summer sunset, the D'Evelyn Class of 2020 received a belated graduation ceremony. The graduates, those who still could attend the ceremony, gathered at Jeffco Stadium on Aug. 6 to be recognized as the latest class to accomplish a noteworthy accomplishment, earning that diploma from one of the top schools in the state.
Student Body President Holly McCollough talked to her peers about the difficulties of graduating amid a pandemic, but reminded them to not stop striving.
"Risk your reputation, risk it all and do the hard thing," she said, because the world changes too fast to stay still.
The class garnered nearly $10 million in sholarship and award money.
For the first time in school history, the graduating class featured co-valedictorians, Megan Smith and Sydney Volheim
"While we lost a lot (from the pandemic), we can't forget what it gave us," Smith said during her speech. She said the lockdown gave the class more time, "maybe too much time," with family, and time to think deeply about what they want to do next.
