NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WKBW) — The City of Niagara Falls is celebrating the class of 2020 all month long. Niagara Falls Mayor Robert Restaino and the City Council have proclaimed the month of June as Graduates Month.

A resolution acknowledges that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, "the Class of 2020 has missed out on traditional rites of passage such as graduations and proms, yet have shown strength in the midst of their disappointment."

“There is a special group of City residents who can hold their heads high – the Niagara Falls High School graduating class of 2020,” said Mayor Restaino. “This group of young men and women have stood strong, adapted to the circumstances and have distinguished themselves as graduates of special distinction. I am proud of them and join my fellow City officials in paying special recognition to a special group of graduates for their outstanding character. I wish all the best to the class of 2020.”

The Proclamation also calls on the community to take part in celebrating the Class of 2020.
