When Coronavirus struck, the class of 2020 saw their lives change unexpectedly. Many students have missed out on traditional rites of passage this spring, including senior proms, graduation ceremonies, and other important celebrations.

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump want these students to know that our country stands with them. On Friday, the First Family hosted a group of students from across education levels for a special graduation ceremony at the White House.

“You should all be proud of yourselves for crossing the finish line in this chapter of your lives,” the First Lady said. “Although today might not look or feel quite like you imagined, you’re still surrounded by the pride, love, and support of your family, friends, community, and our country.”

America’s future is in good hands because of students like these. Our class of 2020 has set an example for the world—no disruption will stop them from pursuing their dreams.
