The 2020 graduating class of Liberty High School may best be represented by the old adage: "Good things come to those who wait." Despite taking place nearly two months after the original scheduled date, parents, teachers, district staff and school board members celebrated the Liberty High School graduating class of 2020 July 23 at Children's Mercy Park, home of Sporting Kansas City.
Prior to the graduation ceremony, two of the three speakers chatted about finally getting to mark this moment. Alyah Craig said she knew the event would be different, but said she was glad to be together with her peers.
Michael Garcia, another speaker, said he appreciates the symbolism of a graduation ceremony.
"It's closure for us," he said. "It's our stepping stone of moving on."
Principal April Adams said the class of 2020 deserved the graduation event, albeit two months later.
"This is about recognizing achievement, which is paramount," she continued, "especially for a group that is made up of thinkers and truth seekers."
