While coronavirus has changed so many aspects of our lives, there is one thing it is not changing--the Journal Record’s annual high school graduation special section.
Although no dates have been set for commencement exercises at any of our local schools due to the uncertainty over the virus, the Journal Record still plans to run the photos and names of all students who will be graduating from Brilliant, Hackleburg, Hamilton, Marion County, Phillips and Winfield City high schools in a special section of the newspaper, which will hit newsstands on Wednesday, May 20.
“Our area high school seniors are going through so much right now. Their last few months of high school, which were supposed to be filled with fun, memory-making activities have been completely turned upside down due to COVID-19,” said Journal Record Managing Editor Jesse Lamar. “We wanted to give them, their parents and grandparents a bit of normalcy and tradition by running our annual graduation section on time.”
