Letter to the Editor

 Congratulations to graduating seniors as your hard work and dedication are rewarded. You have made memories that will stay with you for a lifetime. My grandson, Cason Brady, is a member of the class of 2020.  So, you are not having the usual pomp and circumstance type of graduation? Well, I did back in 1960, 60 years ago, at Breckinridge County High School. It was great. Now, 60 years following, we will not be able to have the pomp and circumstance class reunion. I serve on the Reunion Planning Committee and it seems COVID-19 has doomed that celebration as well. As we lose more members of the Class of 1960 with each passing year, it is so important that we maintain contact with each other. There were 55 seniors in our graduating class with only about 35 remaining.  But, it’s okay Seniors. As one who lived through a polio epidemic and a diphtheria epidemic, I can assure you life goes on and provides us with opportunities to grow, learn, have fun, and succeed. Stay safe, stay loyal, and stay in touch. We can always make in Reunion 61. By Joe Hager
