Which Senior Class Had It Worse: 2020 or 2021?


Kellie Owens, Staff Writer

Everyone has been asking which Hawthorne High School graduating class had it worse, 2020 or 2021? Let’s walk through what each class got for their senior year.

The 2020 seniors got their pep rally in the beginning of the school year, while the 2021 seniors did not.

The 2020 seniors got to play and go to Friday Night Lights and cheer on the Hawthorne Bears in the Bear Cave. The 2021 seniors did get a football season, but it wasn’t what they expected. The seniors got to play, but everyone on the team got 2 tickets each for spectators…which meant, most students could not go to the games.

The 2020 seniors got their holiday dance in December of 2019, but the holiday dance in 2020 was cancelled because of Covid-19.

The 2020 seniors got to do their senior volleyball tournament and speedball tournament. As of right now, the 2021 seniors don’t know if they will be having their volleyball and speedball tournament.

In fact, at this point, the 2021 senior year is still a big question mark…let’s just hope everything starts to turn around and that more normalcy will be found in what remains in the school year.
