Franklin TV: Grads ‘22! They are the ones who just might change the world

by Pete Fasciano, Executive Director 06/05/2022

Graduation – the way I see it. As the proceeding unfolds I sit before 5 cameras, doing my best as director to guide, frame and divine the best view for everyone else.

It’s a lot to take in, and I’m literally calling the shots.

Graduation – the way I see it.
Graduation – the way I see it.

Graduation – the way the students of 2022 see it, is a very unique commencement.

As sophomores their world unraveled as COVID took hold, disrupting everything about their schooling, their lives, the lives of family and friends. Proms and other social events, gone, but that was just the small stuff. Broad fears and uncertainties rolled on through their junior year as they and teachers soldiered on remotely. Now they meet a world with even more economic and political uncertainty. They have had to rally, to grow up faster, become more aware, seek wisdom sooner. This became evident in student speeches that spoke not to these devastations, but to what personal inner strengths and compassions they will need going forward.

The way they see it, the world needs changing in many ways. That’s why they will. It’s a lot to take in. But, now they’re calling the shots.
And – as always –
