San Diego Takes to Social Media to Congratulate High School Grads

Showing support for our high school seniors has been a priority during the coronavirus pandemic for many because the students are missing out on some pretty big events, like prom and graduation ceremonies

A community Facebook page is bringing some smiles to high school seniors all over San Diego by celebrating their accomplishments and graduations.

The Facebook page is called Adopt a High School Senior 2020- San Diego County, where family members post their grad and some of their accomplishments. Individuals interested in "adopting" a senior can contact their parents for more information then send the student a sweet gift.

Michelle Perales is one of the many students who have been posted on the group page. She will be graduating from Hoover High School with a stellar 4.42 GPA and has been involved in several different organizations, sports and clubs. Perales will be attending the University of Richmond in the fall on a full-ride.

One of the grads who has already received a gift, Haley, is graduating from Granite Hills High School. She's played four years of varsity softball and she'll be taking that talent to the University of Hawaii in the fall.

The organizers of the Facebook page are so thankful people throughout our community have stepped up to congratulate these graduates. 

“For me, it was, 'Let's show these seniors San Diego has their back. We’re here to support them,'” Saul Bejarano said.

“It’s touched me in ways I can’t even explain. Tears come once or twice a day reading the posts of these kids. It’s just wonderful,” added Debbie Beckwith.

The Facebook page will be open to post about your grad until June first. A link to that Facebook page can be found here.
