Photo of the Day: Banner Recognizes Framingham High Class of 2020

FRAMINGHAM – A banner that honors the Framingham High class of 2020 was installed tonight, May 13 at Bowditch Field.

Money for the tribute was raised via a GoFundMe by parents and community members.

The original goal was to raise $5,000, it was then raised to $6,000.

The $6,000 will also be used to get a lawn sign for every student at Framingham High and the Thayer campus.

“We will be getting a sign for every student in the Class of 2020 regardless of their ability to pay, which is why we’re asking the Framingham community to stand with us in celebrating our senior class during these unprecedented times.  Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated, and any remaining funds will be donated to the Class of 2020 to offset other expenses,” wrote the parents.

The goal was reached in 24 hours.

As of today, April 13, $8,788 has been raised.

The lawn signs are due this weekend or next week.

Framingham High seniors were to have had their graduation at Bowditch Field on June 7. The Governor’s order of all physical schools closed and no gatherings of more than 10 individuals have cancelled that event,

Framingham High surveyed the students in the class of 2020, and they would prefer an in-person event when possible, even if in August.

Jon Grocer at AllType Digital Graphics charged the parents, who oversaw the banners and signs, for just 2 hours of the about 7 hours of work. That saved more money for the seniors.
