Although the school year did not end the way we anticipated, you must stay focused on your goals. In life there are distractions, disruptions, and events that force us out of our normal routines of the way we do things. One thing I know about all of you is that you are resilient and you can adapt and overcome. So, please stay focused while adjusting to this "temporar y new normal." Although this current pandemic state is different, there are always blessings hidden in situations-- we just have to pause to see them. Class of 2020 you have done a lot of amazing things which has made our community ver y proud. I don't think you realize the impact you have made on our elementar y and middle school students by mentoring them, sharing your knowledge about what you are learning in high school, and why it is so impor tant to do well in school. You have volunteered and donated to the food bank, and assisted with and donated blood at the blood drives. You have made me smile with your talents, gifts, and wittiness. You have also warmed my hear t by saying hello or just stopping by to "check on me." I hope you will be able to reflect on spending time with your friends and family while reminiscing about the funny things that really made you laugh. I hope you keep in touch with your friends and periodically check on them to make sure they are doing fine. You are officially Douglas Byrd High School alumni! I wish you many blessings as you navigate through life. Stay safe and make the best of your life. DOUGLAS BYRD HIGH SCHOOL S i n c e r e l y, D r.
