Winston-Salem Street School celebrates Class of 2020

Winston-Salem Street School celebrates Class of 2020

With larger gatherings still not an option, the Winston-Salem Street School, like other schools, was forced to forego their traditional graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020, for now. The school will have a proper graduation celebration for students and their families when distancing restrictions have been lifted. For now, drive-by celebrations will have to do. 

Last week, braving rainstorms and the challenges of keeping a car caravan together for over 200 miles, Street School staff set out to personally visit each of the 14 members of the Class of 2020. From Monday through Wednesday, ten teachers and administrative staff visited students from northern Davidson County, Kernersville, Rural Hall, Winston-Salem and points in-between. Adhering to social distancing guidelines, students were presented with gift bags full of goodies and a custom yard sign, signifying their hard-fought accomplishments.

Most of these students who are proud members of the Class of 2020 would more than likely not have earned their diplomas if not for their experiences at the Street School. Each found what they needed at the school, whether it was smaller class sizes, one-on-one attention, acceptance with no judgment, or just an environment that was safe and encouraging. Many will go on to further their education and some will enter the workforce, but all now have that which they thought would elude them: a high school diploma. 

Congratulations to the Winston-Salem Street School Class of 2020: (Adult Online Program) Ashley Klinger, Adonis Jones, and Litzy Rivera; (High School Program) Steven Goodwin, Giovanni Guzman, Judith Roble, Talia Ashford, Aysia Williams, Nikki Gattison, Amy Gonzalez-Garcia, Gabby Walker, Leeanna Smith, Jettie Stanley, and Tim Phillips.
