In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mount Notre Dame found a creative way to honor the Class of 2020. On April 27th, MND held “Cougarbration 2020”. The event allowed seniors to participate in a scheduled drive-thru in the MND parking lot where they were safely celebrated and cheered.
Extreme care was taken in planning the event to ensure the health and safety of students, faculty and staff. Students remained in their vehicles while they processed through the parking lot. It was an opportunity for them to receive important items such as caps and gowns, senior yard signs, time capsules and other special graduation gifts. More importantly, it provided a meaningful memory for the Class of 2020 despite a senior year that has not gone according to plan.
MND Principal Mrs. Karen Day commented, “The students, faculty and staff at MND are family – a sisterhood. It has been our goal to find ways to help our students feel connected during this time out of the school building. Our seniors have shared their gifts with our community for four years and this event allowed us to give them some love to carry on these last few weeks. We were blessed with a warm day and, in turn, it warmed our hearts! God is good!”
