Since the graduating seniors of the Class of 2020 are missing out on many of the traditional end-of-year celebrations and will experience a graduation ceremony with limited in-person attendance due to COVID-19, Elgin ISD and the Elgin community have shown their support for the seniors by placing signs, installing purple lights and decorating the fronts of their businesses.
