Congratulations to the graduating 2020 class of Pierson High School.
I looked forward to this day, as my grandson would be graduating. The weather forecast was heavy rain with thunder. As time went by, I would be updated as to a possible cancellation or change in ceremony start time. Graduation would begin at 5 p.m.; then, an update: the time was now set for 6 p.m. The storm was set to hit by 7 o’clock.
No sooner did everyone arrive, it began to sprinkle. This quickly turned into a downpour, complete with thunder — as promised. Needless to say, everyone was soaked. The graduates sat in their chairs with grace and composure, no choice, as their names were called to receive their well-earned diplomas.
My question to all those who made the decision to push the ceremony’s start time later (hence, closer to the storm) rather than sooner — like, maybe, 4 p.m., or 3 or 2 — is: why? The students could have had a totally different and pleasant day to remember.
Success to all the graduates.
