New Billboards Honor Class of 2020 

Five billboards celebrating Bend-La Pine seniors going up in Central Oregon

Since the class of 2020 won't get a typical graduation ceremony because of closures due to COVID-19, Bend-La Pine Schools is honoring graduating high school seniors on five billboards around Central Oregon.

Starting Monday, the billboards honoring the graduating classes of five of the district's high schools will feature photos of each senior. 

“We wanted to do something bold and highly visible to recognize the more than 1,200 seniors who are graduating from our high schools this June,” said Shay Mikalson, BLPS superintendent in a release Friday. “When the opportunity arose to congratulate each high school’s graduating class on a 24-foot wide billboard, we knew we wanted to do it.”

Here's where you can find the billboards:

“These students deserve to be celebrated for their accomplishments and we look forward to our community joining us as we honor each member of the Class of 2020 with this fun showcase,” Mikalson added. “Seniors, when you see these signs – know that we are proud of you and are thinking of you!”
