Class of 2020 Month proclamation honors Marysville graduates
The COVID-19 pandemic has been hard on this year’s high school seniors, who are missing traditional celebratory spring events leading up to and including graduation. In recognition of the Class of 2020’s resilience in this historic time, Mayor Jon Nehring has proclaimed June as Class of 2020 Month in Marysville. The action took place at the May 26 City Council meeting.
“The Marysville community is always proud of its graduates, and we want to make an extra effort to recognize them during this year that has presented so many challenges,” Mayor Nehring said. “Let’s all take this opportunity to reach out and congratulate neighboring high school seniors and their families.”
The full text of the proclamation follows.
