Guntersville High School senior missing out on last memories due to the pandemic

Seniors at Guntersville High School were supposed to attend graduation on Friday, May 15th, but the pandemic prevented that from happening.

GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. — The class of 2020 has missed out on so much of their senior year during the pandemic.

Seniors at Guntersville High School were supposed to walk across the football field and accept their diplomas on Friday, May 15th, but the pandemic prevented that from happening.

Meagan Mosley is a Guntersville High School senior. She said, "We didn't get to finish out the year and enjoy those last moments, and we didn't know that our last day would be our last day."

Their graduation is now in June, but because they've missed out on so much, staff at the high school surprised the students with yard signs.

"They're definitely doing their part to make us feel like we're getting something because so much has been taken away from us," said Meagen.

Although she didn't get to experience prom or enjoy her last spirit week, Meagen is thankful for the memories she made performing in their play, Grease.

"They almost shut us down, but they didn't. We just bleached the auditorium in between performances and people still came and we still got to do it," said said Meagen. "I got to have a role and I got to have a solo. It was definitely one of my favorite memories of all of high school and that was the last time that I was in that building."

Meagan says she and her friends plan to still dress up for prom and go out to eat a nice dinner to make one last high school memory.
