Fairhaven High School Celebrates Its Class of ’21 Seniors
In the age of COVID and all of the canceled and rescheduled events, high school seniors have seemed to get a large brunt of it. While many students have finally gone back to the classroom for in-person learning, many other in-person events, from proms and sporting events to graduations and after-school activities, have gone on in a very different way, if they've gone on at all.
Luckily, graduating high school seniors at Fairhaven High School are still getting some much-deserved recognition for their accomplishments with lawn signs that are now on display along the front lawn of the school on Huttleston Avenue.
The school shared a photo of the signs on its Facebook page Monday morning, writing that they're "celebrating our seniors with 21 for '21!"
It's hard not to feel a little emotional seeing all of the seniors' photos lined up on the lawn with their historic school building as a backdrop. In a year (and some change) where so much has seemed to go wrong, it's nice to see deserving young adults get the recognition they have earned.
Last year, as the heart of the SouthCoast community was aching from the sorrow of the COVID-19 pandemic, thousands of people took to the streets of Acushnet and Fairhaven to honor Blue Devil seniors with a graduation parade.
