    LAWRENCE - Banners, with photos of the 36 Lawrence High School Class of 2020 graduates-to-be, have been put up on downtown Lawrence lamp posts. The banners went up last Saturday, May 2, after it was suggested by the Lawrence Community Development Committee, a financial backer, as well as  the Lawrence Alumni Association, and Lawrence Downtown Development Authority.
    The banners will remain up until prior to  the Class of 2020 commencement ceremony, which has not been determined yet, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The banners will then be given to the graduates during the ceremony.
    Lawrence Village Council member, Phil Glennie, a driving force behind the project, said, “This was an idea that Lawrence Community Development Committee member Mary Muday suggested last year;  however, needed funding for the project could not be generated. Mary brought the  suggestion up again before the committee. This year, we had a clear reason to do it and everyone immediately was in favor. We really pulled all the contributions together in a hurry, and had  great service from FedEx Kinkos Office Print & Ship Center, Portage.”
    Lawrence Public Schools’ Principal, Thom-as Reed,  said, “The groups that spearheaded the effort, especially Phil Glennie, did a great job. It’s gratifying to see the town come together around our senior students.”
