Deerfield Patch Honors High School Graduates: Class Of 2020

Eric DeGrechie

DEERFIELD, IL — Deerfield Patch wants to share the achievements of local high school graduates by putting them in the spotlight over the next few weeks. Due to the coronavirus, in-person instruction has canceled the rest of the 2019-2020 school year in Illinois. We know these wonderful seniors are missing out on some of the last moments of the school year.

We hope that this will give the community a way to share their pride in our Class of 2020 high school graduates. You can find the form here if you'd like to add your graduate. Patch will be updating this form until May 31.

Here are few more of the Deerfield Class of 2020 high school graduates:
