(Updated 5/17) T.C. Williams High School seniors in the class of 2020 may not have their chance to walk across the stage, but a small group of seniors are working to make sure their classmates still get a moment of public celebration.
The Instagram page tctitans_seniors has profiled 92 seniors in the school so far, sharing a picture with their post-graduation plans and other small bits of information about them.
Senior Haydee Patterson said he started the page with Amiya Chisolm when a friend, Rebekah Lamarre, shared the idea with them — having seen it elsewhere on social media for another local high school.
“Amiya and I executed the idea,” Patterson said. “With making the page, we’re hoping for every￼ senior to have a chance to share their post-secondary plans and the outcome/feedback so far has been amazing and I’m glad we did something like this.”
Posts include photos of students hanging out with friends, at band practice, or gathering after sporting events. Some include students sharing their favorite memories from their time at T.C., like football games.
“Myself and Haydee Patterson immediately felt the need to not only post our senior classmates secondary plans, but to also have the option for them to share their favorite memories!” Chisolm said. “Our goal is to have all of our class celebrated where everyone can see at anytime! What better platform is there than Instagram?”
Chisolm said the project has also helped students stay in touch through the end of the school year, and added the obligatory reference to the 2000 sports film about the school.
“The page has also transformed into immediate outreach and a way to easily communicate senior year updates,” Chisolm said. “We now have over 500 followers and over 100 people sending over their information! We want to make sure everyone remembers the Titans!”
