New Davis High School banners honors 2020 class
The City of Davis is paying tribute to it’s high school seniors by displaying their portraits for all to see.
The 2019-2020 school year was cut short because of coronavirus, but seniors like Lauren Esparza said she’s happy for her 2020 class.
"It was just awesome to see all of the banners going up, and we just came down here as soon as possible with my family and looked at our banner and took pictures,” said Esparza.
The City of Davis hired Pro Vinyl solutions to make 30 banners to honor the 59 graduating seniors. Each one has a different senior to honor them for their hard work that was taken away too early.
Student athlete Dakota Bridenstine said he was right in the middle of a baseball tournament when his coaches broke the news.
"It was different. We didn't know what to expect when we got back. Once we got back, we just kind of learned as we go really,” said Bridenstine.
Students like Qurissa Dodds said she was flooded with memories when the news hit her.
"But then all of the emotions hit me that I probably wouldn't get prom and graduation and not in my senior year I would walk the halls again.” said Dodds.
Dodds said she saw the banners being pulled up Thursday and said it spark joy to know her home town has her back.
"I didn't know it happened and I was really honored to see it when I was driving by and I just saw my senior picture up there. I was really honored that Davis and everyone in Davis would do that." said Qurissa Dodds.
