Celebrating Seniors: How a High School Leader is Creatively Honoring the Class of 2020

Large, in-person gatherings remain off limits as Louisiana attempts to curb the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), forcing high schools to find creative ways to celebrate the accomplishments of the Class of 2020. This month’s blog spotlights Emily Martin, a director at MSA West Academy in Iberville Parish, who has gained recognition for her non-traditional, but highly memorable, send-off for seniors.
