From all of us at Auburn-Opelika Moms Blog, we are proud of your accomplishments and honored to celebrate you!  We admire your determination, strength, talents, and the resilience you have shown in your achievement. Congratulations to the graduating class of 2020.

To Our Seniors

In the time of 9/11

into this world you came. 

Two very important reasons why 

our lives are now not the same.

Off to school you went at five

and your friendship circles grew.

These friends became like family

and were with you through and through.

Now here you are as seniors

and the world is upside down.

Some of you are wondering if 

you’ll wear your cap and gown.

We know it’s all uncertain

as you navigate this part.

Just know without uncertanity

that you’re loved with all our hearts.
