Graduating High School is a big milestone in your life. I remember just two years ago the eagerness among my classmates as we prepared to walk across the stage to receive our diplomas. Everything we had been working toward over the past twelve years was finally here, and we were thrilled.
I clearly remember the months leading up to graduation. Everyone was deciding what their future would look like and where they were headed - either to college or to start a new job.. It was exciting, joyful, scary and heartbreaking all at once. For the first time in my life, my best friends and the people that I grew up with were going to be in different places and states.
I remember the spring semester of my senior year. With few responsibilities outside of school, my friends and I were able to spend almost all of our free time together. We went to each another’s final sporting events, spent weekends together planning our graduation parties, and made any excuse to reminisce on all of the memories that we had made over the years and the lessons we had learned along the way.
I remember my senior banquet. The top students in my class were able to honor two teachers that made a lasting impact on their lives. It was a special occasion to celebrate all of our hard work and those who helped us on our journey. The following night was prom, and twenty of my closest friends rented a bus to get to and from the event. We spent the night enjoying each other's company and not thinking about the future too much, mostly ignoring the fact that this might be the last time we were all at an event like this together. These are a few of the memories that will last for the rest of my life, and I cherish them greatly.
This year, traditional spring breaks, proms, sports seasons, and graduation ceremonies were taken away from the class of 2020, but that doesn’t mean that it won’t be a time to remember. They weren’t able to savor the last few months of high school like most graduates, but through Zoom calls, remote proms, and virtual graduation ceremonies, they’ve made senior year special, impactful and filled with great memories. I know now how lucky I was to be able spend those last months with my classmates in person, but the class of 2020 has already shown their optimism and perseverance by their ability to make the best out of a short senior year.
As the class of 2020 looks toward the future, First Farmers wants to help graduates prepare and celebrate this exciting time in their lives. That’s why we’re here to help recent high school graduates kick start their own financial freedom. The best time to start is now.
The future is filled with target runs and dorm room decorating and intramurals and late night Thai food delivery and books and labs and lasting memories. We hope that we can help get graduates started in this new chapter of their lives.
