Louisville Seminary — Louisville, Kentucky
After classes at Louisville Seminary went online in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it became clear that a formal graduation ceremony would not be happening for the class of 2020. Luckily, the graduating students at Louisville Seminary had a caring group of peers, faculty and staff that started to think creatively about how to make graduation special. By the day of graduation, donations from over 20 people including faculty, staff and students had come in to cover the entire cost of care packages for each graduate. These graduation care packages included: doughnuts, a sparkling beverage, a mini cake and a card. A group of seven student volunteers gathered with masks and gloves to deliver packages to the doorsteps of every graduate of the seminary that lives locally in Louisville. Graduates celebrated this milestone safely at home, but surrounded by the love of their community.
