The final semester of a high school senior’s life is supposed to be a time to celebrate all that was accomplished from Kindergarten on, and a time to look forward to new challenges. Unfortunately, the class of 2020 didn’t get the chance to experience all the highs and lows of the final semester of their senior year. COVID-19 took care of that, sending students home in March to "distance learn." 

At Blue Shield of California, we know how important it is for young people to get the support and resources they need to be resilient and healthy – both mentally and physically. We launched our BlueSky program this past school year with the aim to do just that: offer support for student mental health challenges and boost youth resiliency.

Today, we celebrate graduating seniors from our 19 BlueSky schools, and students all over nation. This video is an ode to graduates, who won’t let COVID-19 stop them from making their mark in the world.
