This is what support looks like! Celebrities Kevin Hart, Serena Williams & Stephen Curry have partnered with Chase banking to host a virtual graduation for the Class of 2020!
A lot of concern has been raised about what can be done to celebrate the class of 2020. Despite the hard work students have put in, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, proms, graduation, and even in person schooling has been cancelled in masse. There seems to be no end in sight to this social distancing and no concrete date on when, if at all, things will return back to normal.
With this new reality facing us, one corporation has decided to step forward. Thasunda Brown, CEO of Chase Consumer Banking, took to social media to make the announcement. The “Show Me Your Walk” initiative will be broadcast across Twitter & YouTube and hosted by Kevin Hart, Serena Williams and NBA Superstar Stephen Curry. The celebration will include formal commencement speeches, recognitions and the first ever virtual graduation walk.
“To the Class of 2020 – while graduation this year is not what any of us imagined, what you’ve accomplished is huge and you deserve to be celebrated!,” Brown wrote on Instagram.
The virtual graduation takes place May 2nd on Twitter and YouTube at 2pm EST.
Let’s all tune in to support our graduates!
