In a video uploaded on Facebook, GTA showed how secondary principal Michelle Floering went to Culver’s drive thru to tell high school senior Kaitlyn Watson that she is the academic year’s batch valedictorian.

“Hi, Kaitlyn. I got you on camera because I want to announce something to you today. You are GTA’s Class 2020 batch valedictorian. I know we have to stay six feet away so I can’t give you a hug, but congratulations. Well deserved,” Floering said.

“I am? Oh my gosh! Thank you so much…That makes me so happy,” the working student said, obviously in shock as she jumped for joy.

The continuing increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in the world has affected school and even work operations because of the implementation of community quarantine and lockdown in some areas.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the US already reached 103,321 outnumbering the cases in China and Italy.

“So far, 80 percent of patients experience mild form of the illness, which can include fever and pneumonia, and many of these cases require little to no medical intervention,” an article from The Guardian said.
