    Yard signs

    Our Community-wide Celebration of the Columbus City Schools Class of 2020 is going strong - yard signs, electronic billboards, and radio commercials echoing the student-powered message “Can’t Stop Us!” - with the support of district and city leaders, local businesses, and community partners throughout Columbus.

    Can't Stop Us! The “Can’t Stop Us!” theme of this celebration came out of input from several 12th graders who said they wanted a message that reflected on how this special class of graduating seniors did not let the COVID-19 crisis prevent them from achieving success.

    Throughout the month of June, the Class of 2020 seniors are being recognized with individualized yard signs, a series of electronic Celebration Billboards across the city, radio commercials, and a special City Hall lighting. Students are also receiving a distinctive Senior Celebration Box with a unique CCS Class of 2020 “Can’t Stop Us!” t-shirt and other memorable items.
