ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — News 8 is proud to recognize the Class of 2020!
Since the coronavirus pandemic forced school closures and commencement cancellations, we have been taking viewer-submitted senior photos and honoring these students during newscasts.
The participation and enthusiasm has been outstanding, so we extended our Senior Salute for a live streaming special on our website and on TV.
We heard from valedictorians and class representatives from some of our local schools. We also listened to messages from prominent Rochesterians, past and present, who had encouraging words for these graduates that have been through so much.
Watch the full video in the player above, and congratulations to the class of 2020!
