Class of 2020


Students graduating from Bay Area high schools in 2020 had a senior year unlike any other.

The coronavirus pandemic interrupted many of the rites of passage that students expect to enjoy as they complete their education. 

With schools still shut, KTVU wanted to offer the opportunity for seniors to take part in at least one tradition: the graduation speech. 

Here are some of the talented valedictorians and class officers delivering the address that they were unable to make in person to their classmates, families and teachers.

Congratulations to the Class of 2020!
