How Covid-19 has impacted seniors

The Class of 2020 is the last class to have attended the old Abington High School. This photo, taken in the old gym, shows some members of the current senior class as freshmen during International Week, March of 2017.

During the week of March 18, Abington High School students Julie Warsheski, Connor Saccoach, and Vianne Shao were interviewed about how COVID-19 has affected their senior year.

These three members of the Class of 2020 explained how the current pandemic changed the way their senior year was supposed to go. They also talked about plans they have for the future.

Like students everywhere, these seniors are living thorough a major event in history. As students born into the post 9/11 world, they have lived through other significant events, such as the Boston Marathon Bombings in 2013. And now the Class of 2020 will also become part of this piece of history. As they move on to college, they will carry a legacy with them.

The world right now is shaping them, and Warsheski, Saccoach, and Shao explained how this chapter of their lives is not the last.
