It was a commencement ceremony no one who took part will ever forget. COVID-19 made
sure of that. For the Class of 2020, who persevered through the worst pandemic in
a century and the most civil unrest in half a century, they managed to complete their
studies. Mt. SAC made sure they had a very special send off and congratulations to
go along with their hard won Associate's degrees.
...and off they go as the sun prepares to set on another academic year. But 2020 was
in no way average and these students are ones for the history books. They made history
here. They will now make history in the tomorrows to come.
Maybe in a decade or two, dust will be wiped from a tattered moving box, and an older
and wiser hand will reach inside to find this, and the paper it has kept safe for
so many years. A commemoration of the great and awesome achievement they attained
back in the Year of Quarantine 2020.
