Notations From the Grid (Special Friday Edition): A Tribute to the Class of 2020

As we all contemplate #LifeAfterCovid, our team decided to feature this courtesy the Obama Foundation about Stories of Hope as we bid farewell to the Class of 2020--Please #StaySafe & #BeWell as we look forward to "seeing" all in our properties next week:

Obama Foundation

The COVID-19 pandemic won’t stop us from celebrating our graduates. This Saturday, President Obama will deliver a virtual commencement message to the high school class of 2020. His remarks will be featured as part of a primetime special called Graduate Together: America Honors the Class of 2020, airing on broadcast networks and streaming online at 8 pm ET/7 pm CT.
And we want you to be part of the celebration, too. Call us at (773) 657-9284 and leave us a voicemail to share your own words of encouragement with the class of 2020. 

We’ll share some of these messages with our audience ahead of President Obama’s speech, as we help celebrate America’s graduating seniors.

Below you’ll also find a few of the hopeful stories we’ve witnessed in the past week. Be sure to leave your own hopeful voicemail message for the graduating class of 2020—and help us share more stories of social connection in this time of social distancing at

Stay healthy, stay hopeful,

—The Obama Foundation


Great teachers make a lasting impact on all of us. Watch President Obama recognize some legendary educators here in Chicago on Teacher Appreciation Day.

We’ll never forget the ways we’ve seen leaders step up in their communities across the world. In southwest Nigeria, Africa Leader Edem Dorothy Ossai is distributing packages filled with food and sanitation items to help teenagers most at risk from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Combining her passion for running with a desire to help her community, 15-year-old Maya Mor organized the Stronger Together Virtual 5K. With hundreds of participants, she was able to raise nearly $12,000 for the United Way Minnesota's COVID-19 Response & Recovery Fund.

Support students and families impacted by COVID-19.
