Presentation Night 2020 Recap

Our first ever remote presentation night was a great success! While we couldn’t be hanging out in person, families and friends gathered round their computers to watch the Facebook live stream. There were zoom calls going on at the same time, and people didn’t hold back in commenting and congratulating the winners. Our video ended up having over 900 views and had 151 comments. Thanks to everyone who tuned in!
