The Ventura County Class of 2021 Impresses and Inspires Amid Pandemic Challenges

DrCésarMorales-cr-smAfter an entire school year in the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic, we are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Last year’s drive-through graduation events are being replaced with in-person ceremonies – some of them even held indoors.

Like the class of 2020 before them, high school students in the graduating class of 2021 have shown incredible resilience and perseverance throughout the pandemic. They’ve adapted to distance learning and social distancing and the strange realities of returning to school during a global health emergency.

Through it all, they’ve not only survived but thrived and impressed us all beyond belief. As Ventura County’s new Superintendent of Schools, I’m honored to have this opportunity to introduce you to just a few of our outstanding graduating seniors in this edition of Focus on Education.
