Adrian Jones graduated as the valedictorian of Edison Career and Technology High School within the Rochester City School District. 

But he wasn’t able to give his speech in front of his fellow classmates. By the time graduation came around, it was canceled.

“At the beginning, it's the whole college process so everything's kind of hectic and crazy,” Jones said. “And then when it’s finally over, you expect for all the fun stuff about senior year to start happening -- and then everything just came to a halt.”
