On Wednesday morning, Kingswood Oxford seniors drove through campus to pick up a special breakfast made by Kingswood Oxford’s Brian Woerlen and his team at SAGE dining. They were greeted by chalk drawings of each of their names around the circle entrance, messages of “We miss you!” and "We love you class of 2020!”, as well as a group of faculty and staff who presented them with a box of pastries and a cup of hot chocolate. There was no shortage of smiles, waves, virtual hugs, and some bittersweet tears as they waved to one another and caught up in conversations through car windows.
School mascot KoKo made an appearance, dancing to music, blowing kisses, and humorously running after cars as they drove through. One staff member who was handing out treats said, “It was such a special morning. It was wonderful to see faces and smiles we have only seen through Zoom for so long now!”
It is certainly not the senior year that anyone expected, but each and every faculty and staff member is committed to making sure that the Class of 2020 has a month of May they won’t forget, including a variety of special touches to celebrate this incredible group of students, athletes, musicians, and thespians. And, let's not forget to mention their resilience as these history-making rising college students who are braving these unprecedented times with grace.
