Area school districts join in on a national movement to shine a light on Class of 2020
Be the light.
That was the call on social media. Be. The. Light.
Many area high school football stadiums put on their lights at 8:20 p.m. (20:20 military time) to honor the Class of 2020.
At Hockinson High School, a cruise-in took place, with community members driving their cars through the campus parking lot, making laps while honking horns.
School districts across the county, across the state joined in at a recent wave of light ceremonies throughout the country.
Not every district participated. Some have said they will wait until the stay-at-home guidelines are lifted.
And more than one district lit up its stadium but asked folks not to come to the site. Instead, administrators took photos of the stadium lights and scoreboard and shared them on social media.
Here is a short video on all the action at Hockinson on Friday night:
