The Office of Councilmember Curren Price would like to congratulate the graduates of the Class of 2020. Having to overcome tremendous adversity, hardships and challenges, your accomplishments will be cemented in history as the class that could do anything they put their minds (and hearts) to.
As you get ready to end the school year with virtual culminations, festive parades and family celebrations, remember the lessons you have learned inside and outside of the classroom.
“Graduates, you represent the new generation of South LA filled with much promise,” said Councilmember Price. “In a time when the world stopped, you kept going. Your determination, adaptability and focus led you to this milestone. You proved that nothing, not even a global pandemic, could stop you. Harness the power of this moment and let it catapult you toward your dreams and aspirations."
