The class of 2020 has had a graduation unlike any class before them. They have graduated on Zoom, from their cars, and at home from behind masks and while social distancing. It’s time to give them a little extra recognition — they’ve certainly earned it.

Last week, asked our readers to submit senior photos or messages for a virtual yearbook. Ahead, we share the heartfelt messages from families, senior portraits, and senior sign-offs of more than a dozen graduating students across Massachusetts. Congratulations, 2020 grads!
