As California High School seniors approach the final days of their high school career, Cal is finding ways to safely recognize 675 members of the Class the 2020, their accomplishments over the last four years and their ability to persevere under the most unexpected circumstances.
Following social distancing guidelines and facial covering requirements, Cal High meticulously organized grab-and-go opportunities to provide seniors their graduation packages, which included caps and gowns, medals and yard signs on May 20. The signs were sponsored by the Whittier Union High School District Educational Foundation.
The school also recognized high academic achievers and scholarship winners during a virtual Senior Awards program.
This year, Cal High is expected to graduate 675 seniors, including valedictorians Caroline Schloss, who will attend UC Berkeley, UC Irvine-bound seniors Steven Leal and Patrocinio Ramirez, and salutatorian Agnes Cosico, who will attend UCLA or Cal State Fullerton.
Graduations have been postponed until late July to give seniors time to make up any classes necessary during summer school and allow extra time for public health restrictions to be eased.
