KIPP NYC College Prep High School in the Bronx held a virtual ceremony on Friday night to celebrate its graduating senior class.
Assemblyman Michael Blake served as a guest speaker during the event.
“This may not be normal times, but this is your generational moment,” he said. “This is going from pain to promise.”
There was also a slideshow of photos and videos from the class’s years at KIPP.
Nearly 75% of the 285 members of the class are first-generation high school graduates.
