Sunday, June 6, 2021 Congrats to the Grads of 2021

They have persevered through a year like no other.  
by Pete Fasciano, Executive Director, Franklin●TV and wfpr●fm

Well, they did it. The Senior Class of 2021 has officially graduated and brought an end to a school year that was anything but normal. The year was all about being patient – adapting to unpredictable events. So too, the ceremonies were very much like the year. Facing the possibility of a rainout, the outdoor field ceremonies were held off by two hours to let the threatening clouds pass. Being patient – adapting to unpredictable events.

As in years past, at the end the students would march out in recession to meet families in the parking lot.  Didn’t happen.  Instead, their families immediately ran to meet them on the field. No more patience. They and their families became the unpredictable event – in the very best sense. Just like that – their year was done.

Thanks to our stalwart TV crew

Thanks to our stalwart TV crew (I don’t get to use the word ‘stalwart’ often)  - Keith Palmieri, Chris Flynn, Scott Tooker, Li Wang, Chris Leverone and Bill Hurley, we adapted and navigated our way through the festivities as an unpredictable event. Clearly, this year’s Franklin Seniors are now well prepared to do the same.

And –  as always –
Thank you for listening to wfpr●fm. 
And, thank you for watching
