Adopt a senior: Grimsley High School Parents celebrate graduation

A parent or member of the community “adopted” a senior and got them a gift or gifts totaling no more than $25.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Senior Parent Jennifer Steele wanted to do something special for all the seniors at Grimsley High School who lost out on prom, project graduation, and other senior traditions. 

She started a Facebook page called “Adopt A Whilrie Class of 2020” where parents could post info about their own senior and another parent or member of the community would then “adopt” them and get them a gift or gifts totaling no more than $25.

The parents know it can’t replace the highlights of a senior year but they want the seniors to know that people care about them and support them. They are still holding out hope for an in-person graduation ceremony.
