Every class has been impacted by the global pandemic, but no grade has been affected more than the class of 2020. The seniors have been looking forward to this year ever since they started at Liberty, but now they have lost time and memories with their friends that they would have remembered forever.

“I’m going to miss out on an entire season of memories,” said senior Paige Eikel of her soccer season. 

Not only have they lost time with their friends, but seniors playing spring sports have lost their last season. 

The team and I worked really hard to make this season our best season yet and it’s sad that we probably won’t be able to see our hard work pay off.”

Many seniors have the chance of losing their senior trip. For some seniors, a senior trip was the last trip with their family before starting college. For other seniors, it was a chance to be with their friends the last time before they all split ways. Either way, losing that experience is losing a big part of saying goodbye. 

“Me and some friends are planning on going to Florida in July to go to Disney for a week,” said senior Parker Schniepp. Schniepp and his friends CJ Butler, Joey Bussleman, Aidan Taitt, Joe Deters, and Mason Mitchell have been planning this trip since the beginning of this year. 

“I would be quite upset if the trip was canceled,” Schniepp said. 

The class of 2020 is missing out on life-lasting memories with friends that they will have to say goodbye to in a couple of short months due to the coronavirus.
