Madill Record to publish Keepsake Edition of 2020 Graduation Tab


This is the time ofyear is when high school seniors prepare to graduate and go onto their next stage of life. For some, it is enteringthe workforce. Meanwhile, others join the military or head off to college to further their education.

Seniors will graduate again this year and these same transitional steps will happen.

However, the last few weeks have been anything but normal.

Although the internet memes calling the Class of 2020, the quarantine class, are funny in the right context, said memes and jokes are not the lasting memory most folks want for this year’s seniors.

With that in mind and offer some semblance of normalcy, The Madill Record will be producing its annual Graduation Tab this year.

We believe that normalcy or at least some sort of routine is needed in these unprecedented times.

While we have thus far been spared multiple cases of COVID-19 in Marshall County, for which we are thankful, most of us have been impacted by the pandemic one way or another. We want this year’s Graduation Tab to stand out as a keepsake for the senior of both of our counties high schools and their parents.

These students have contributed much to the community and what makes it a special place to call home.

Our plan is to publish the tab on Thursday, May 21. It will run inside that week’s regular issue of The Madill Record.

As always, the publication of a special section of the newspaper requires investment. In this case, the investment is two-fold. First, it takes extra time on our part to produce.

However, more importantly, it requires your investment as a community member. That investment maybe sponsoring an advertisement for your child or grandchild. Or it may be a larger investment by your small business. Regardless, this is a community supported project. We’re setting th.e deadline for ads in this special section as Friday, May 8.

As someone who didn’t have somethinglike this growing up (which may be the result of living in a big city), I appreciate having somethinglike this available to the kids in our community. Regardless of their grades or life stories, they have put in more than a decade of hard work and study to get this point. They deserve to be celebrated.

We hope you join us in celebrating the seniors of the Class of 2020 for both Madill High School and Kingston High School.
