Letter: ‘Thank you’ to a community of caring

Our daughter is a recent graduate of Austin High School.

We wanted to express our appreciation to all who made the graduation festivities possible and memorable in spite of the circumstances.

We would like to acknowledge Hormel Foods for the banners at Wescott Field, the volunteers and businesses that supported Project Graduation, the Austin Area Arts Council for photos at the Paramount, those who planned the car parade and those who lined the streets for it. Gratitude especially goes out to the teachers and staff at our schools, who with grace and perseverance continued to help our children grow and gain knowledge despite the separation.

You, and others unnamed here, honored and celebrated the Class of 2020.

We thank you.

Richard and Laura Carlson
