The West Genesee Class of 2020 is paying an admirable tribute to the first responders who have been at the heart of treating patients with COVID-19. This will take shape in a message that will begin appearing on the electronic billboard at Township 5 beginning today, Thursday, June 18 through June 24.
The images are of graduates in caps and gowns, and medical personal in full PPE. The message to all these medical heroes?
“WE CAN WEAR OUR CAPS AND GOWNS,
BECAUSE YOU WORE YOURS.
FROM THE CLASS OF 2020
This tribute image and message was created by artist, Julia Winfield, a 1983 graduate of West Genesse High School. Julia has an art and design business in Charlotte, NC, and has donated this piece to her alma mater, where she believes students are encouraged to value the accomplishments of others.
