This year was not about the usual. It was about surprises, one after another that led to a delayed graduation for the Marysville High School class of 2020.

“The class of 2020 is one to remember,” wrote Piper Patterson in her co-valedictorian speech, which wasn’t read during Sunday’s graduation. “Our class will forever be remembered as the ones who never really got to finish out our senior year and all the wildness that comes with it. One good thing that came from this year is that we will forever go down in history as the class with the best senior skip day … because we never came back.”
