2020 Challenge: A Tribute

When the pandemic ruined One World’s plan to host its annual in-person showcase gala, it challenged our students. They amazed us with their response to our Virtual Challenge. We had students staying up late into the night to access their buildings’ faulty internet systems. We had siblings doing their work on shared handheld devices. One mother apologized for her child not turning in her assignment because the family was dealing with four COVID-19 deaths.

 

One World staff were sheltered from the worst of the pandemic. Our students faced it and responded with grace and countless thank yous for our efforts on their behalf. We pay tribute here to the amazing class of 2020 who we will remember forever!
