September 11, 2020

 

Mrs. Poston submitted an article, along with a photo that made the front cover, to Texas Lone Star magazine, a publication of the Texas Association of School Boards, on the graduation the KHS Class of 2020. This unusual graduation ceremony was the result of the COVID pandemic that could have potentially canceled the milestone celebration that is eagerly anticipated by high school seniors and their families. In her article, Taylor brought to life the unique ceremony held at the Texas Motor Speedway, where graduates crossed the finish line, one by one, receiving their diplomas and symbolically marking the end of their high school race. Families of the graduates watched from their cars parked on the infield, as the event also played out on the world’s largest outdoor media screen.
