Graduating During a Pandemic? Share Your Story with HPPR!

For most students and their families, graduation is an unforgettable time of celebration. Reaching this crucial educational milestone during a pandemic? Well, that's something no one could easily forget. While we're hearing national stories about innovation in graduation, from drive-thru diploma delivery to socially-distanced ceremoies at a local drive-in, HPPR wants to know how YOUR cap-and-gown experience has been during the COVID-19 crisis. Given the resilient spirit of the people of the High Plains, we know there will be plenty of "pomp," no matter what the "circumstance." Share your story todaywith HPPR's college intern—and soon-to-be-graduate— Isabelle Link. If you have question, contact HPPR at 806.367.9088.
