Lake Braddock Seniors Keep The Graduation Traditions Online

As COVID-19 has wrecked the traditions of the final year in high school, seniors from Lake Braddock Secondary School, in Burke, Virginia, are trying to boost classmate morale. The page lbseniors2020 on Instagram shows the dreams of more than 100 members of the graduating class of Lake Braddock. The page is organized by Keely Ochs organized the page. Ochs puts in students’ names, pictures, and post-graduation plans.

Senior Class President Clark T. Levine said, “It just makes [us] feel a little more like we’re still connected, and we’re still there, even if we can’t physically be there. I’ve heard a lot of good feedback from around the community, from a lot of other friends and colleagues of mine, who really appreciate the page.”

According to wtop.com, “Lake Braddock seniors have also been working since early April on what they call Operation Senior Banners. Levine and Lake Braddock parent Laura Beene not only made small banners featuring the graduation year but also created a bear-paw print to represent the school’s Bruins mascot. A personal letter and a poem were included. Levine said Beene had the idea after she remembered a similar concept to show support for soldiers going off to war.”

As per wtop.com, “Nearly 200 seniors said they wanted a banner packet. When the demand became too much for two people to handle, Levine said, others stepped up, including Tyler Garkey, Julianne Saunders, Davis May, and Joan Lin. Each was dropped off in person with social distancing in mind. The students have been posting pictures of themselves with the banner and the hashtag #seniorstrong.”
