GLEN ELLYN, IL — Glen Ellyn Patch wants to honor local high school graduates, as in-person graduations, proms and other events have been canceled or postponed for 2020 due to the new coronavirus. Since many seniors are missing out on these events, we wanted to find a way to make them feel special. These messages and photos were sent by family members who wanted to show their graduates some love.
