Montgomery Locals 6.10
Last Friday night, Montgomery’s seniors made the transition to Montgomery Alumni. The Class of 2020 had a very atypical senior year due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but they made the best of the circumstances with online schooling at home for the last few months.
Montgomery’s commencement ceremonies have been open to the public for the past several years since the Athletic Center was built, but restrictions made a public ceremony impossible. Students were honored at a private, socially distanced event that was held outdoors.
A video was shared online that was put together to honor the senior class. Participants each filmed separate videos or took photos at home that were submitted and compiled into a warm and caring tribute.
The song “Found Tonight” was performed by 12 people who each recorded their own vocal parts separately in their own homes. Some of these performers were Virtuoso’s co-directors Carina McNear and Jessica Carpenter, as well as Dakota Deem, Joshua Glover, and alumna Elly Brown, a professional singer. The video was edited together and featured a montage of individual teachers holding signs they created that expressed
their good wishes. If you haven’t seen it yet, take a few minutes to
watch it. Congratulations to the Class of 2020!
