Sa gitna ng COVID-19 pandemic, muling nagsama-sama on different virtual platforms ang maraming Hollywood and international celebrities to honor the graduating class of 2020.
Dahil sa pandemic, walang magaganap na graduation exercises, graduation ball o graduation celebration with family and relatives. Kaya naman naisip ng ilang celebrities na magkaisa via Instagram and Facebook para sa #Graduation2020 virtual ceremonies.
Sina Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak ang nag-host ng event kunsaan every high school and college in all 50 states got a shout-out.
Inawit ni Miley Cyrus ang inspirational song na "The Climb" at kasama sa ilang big stars sa pagbigay ng kanilang commencement address, kabilang rito ay ang former US President Barrack Obama.
“With all the challenges this country faces right now, nobody can tell you, ‘No, you're too young to understand’ or ‘this is how it’s always been done.’ Because with so much uncertainty, with everything suddenly up for grabs, this is your generation’s world to shape,” sey ni Obama.
Heto pa ang ilang mga nagbigay ng virtual messages sa graduation class of 2020:
“You are indeed, the chosen class, for such a time as this, the Class of 2020. You're also a united class, the pandemic class, that has the entire world striving to graduate with you. But even though there may not be pomp because of our circumstances, never has a graduating class been called to step into the future with more purpose, vision, passion and energy and hope.”
“A great speech, like a great song comes from the heart. It’s only when the words flow from authentic emotions that it can actually really resonate with the many, versus the few. This video you’re about to see does exactly that. It was written and produced by graduating seniors in Arizona's high schools to provide words of inspiration to their classmates. What they created has grown, and they are now joined by other seniors from across the US.”
“The Class of 2020 won't be defined by what we lost to this virus, but by how we responded to it. The world is yours now, and I can't wait to see what you make of it.”
“These last 12 years of school has prepared you all to go out into the world and be global citizens, just like it's done for me. And even though we are amidst circumstances that have affected our families, our friends, and communities, I'm inspired by how many of you all continue to ask, ‘How can I be of service?’”
“It's not the moments of achievement or recognition that stick with you, it's the getting there that you remember.”
“It’s more than a diploma, it's more than graduation, it’s knowledge, it’s knowing that you did it. Now you're about to start your life, you’re about to make some money, you're about to show your skills on what you worked for!”
“We know how hard you worked to bring home that diploma. I know you're missing what is supposed to be your medal ceremony, but that ceremony doesn't change a thing. You’ve already won.”
“I want to say it’s ok not to know what to do with the rest of your life. It's a journey to find your direction or your passions, so don’t get frustrated by the mistakes and setbacks as they happen to all of us.”
“Stay true to your most authentic self.”
“All right, all right, all right. You’re going to continue to learn for the rest of your life. The big learning is coming in the future for you. I promise you. The experiential learning, where you get to put what you’ve learned in school to task. This is when it gets fun. This is when it gets hard.”
