On March 13, 2020, Friday the 13th, the Lower Dauphin High School Class of 2020 spent their last day in high school.
As seniors, they had a lot to look forward to - MiniTHON, spring sports and concerts, prom, senior awards night, serving as counselors at Camp Hebron, volunteering for Special Olympics, and simply being able to say goodbye to their friends and teachers. With the mandatory closure of schools on that Friday, they left without having the chance to say goodbye to their Alma Mater.
The school staff, parents and community all wish this year would have gone according to plan just like the other 59 springs before it. However, this class, these 273 individuals, handled this difficult situation with grace and, in doing so, embodied resilience, character and maturity which has made us all proud.
To the Class of 2020, we look forward to the amazing things you will do. Remember that you will always be Falcons and we will always be your biggest fans.
