SUWANEE, GA — Patch wants to provide a way to share the achievements of our high school graduates, even if it's in a small way. With in-person instruction canceled through the rest of the 2019-20 school year due to the coronavirus in Georgia public schools, seniors are missing out on the last moments of what should be a celebratory time.
We know many high school seniors are missing milestone high school events, and we hope that this will give the community a way to share their pride in our class of 2020 high school graduates.
