Florida principal crafts personal notes for 459 high school graduates

Graduation ceremonies canceled, postponed amid COVID-19 outbreak

PALM COAST, Fla. — A Florida high school principal spent the last several months of the school year crafting personalized notes for each of the 459 graduates.

Matanzas High School principal Jeff Reaves left them on their seats to read before they received their diplomas during the school’s June 2 graduation ceremony.

Reaves scoured through transcripts, emails and used his own personal memories to prepare the notes in time for the graduation.

He tells The Daytona Beach News Journal he wanted to be positive for students in a time where “there’s a lot of negativity and turmoil in the world.”
