Tonight we are celebrating the class of 2020.
Every family in America experiencing the critical role our schools and charities play in our lives, and what happens when they shut down.
And in our poorest neighborhood, schools are about much more than learning.
And places like Akron, Ohio, schools are the most essential service.
They may be the only place that supports you, the only place to protect you, and for many, the only place to feed you.
Our schools are our safety net.
Our people build our communities.
To the class of 2020 as you celebrate tonight, do not forget your safety net.
Every teacher, every coach, every pastor, they along with your friends and family got you to this moment.
And now it is time to go to a new place.
