Class of 2020 Bricks

Submitted by Dana Blank

The Class of 2020, as we know, was cheated out of many things due to the pandemic. We were supposed to go to Chicago for our senior trip. The kids and parents raised money since the summer of 2016 and through the years for the kids to take this trip. The pandemic stopped that. The money raised went into a tribute to the class in the form of a brick memorial. It has every single student represented with his/her own personal brick.

Additionally, it has an overview of some of the celebrations and struggles this class has had to deal. I am thrilled it is going in before the end of the school year. Larry Bosom (Five-Star Masonry) did not think he could get it in… but the weather shifted in our favor and he’s out there today putting them in for the kids.
