In Governor Andy Beshear’s latest announcement to the people of Kentucky, he informed 2020 seniors that the likelihood of having an in-person graduation or prom was slim. “To those seniors it’s going to be a little bit harder because it doesn’t look like at this stage we’re going to be able to have a regular in person graduation and certainly can’t have an in person prom,” informed Governor Beshear

The governor then went on in the live to say that what they are looking at right now are opportunities to do virtual graduation or even drive in graduation. The governor sympathized with seniors letting them know that he knows it’s not fair. “It’s not fair if you’re watching it’s not but a worldwide pandemic has hit us and those of you that are missing out on these opportunities we need your help and we need your sacrifice and ultimately the experience your losing is hard but your willingness to do it is going to help us save lives,” informed Governor Beshear.

Governor Beshear also informed the public that all Kentucky schools will suspend in-person classes for the remainder of the school year.  The governor mentioned that they have asked all Kentucky schools to continue utilizing NTI thought this year. “ it’s very helpful for our kids, it gives them an outlet, it keeps them intellectually challenged,” said Governor Beshear
