I’m Josh, the editor of Louisville Magazine, and I want to interview you about graduating from high school in this tough but unforgettable year. I graduated 18 years ago, which means, yes, I am old, but not so old that I don’t remember what it was like to be a senior. (The yearbook I just dug out of my basement reminded me that I saw the original “Fast and the Furious” in the theater the night it came out. Again: OLD.)
When I think about your graduating class, the first thing that comes to mind is how much it sucks that you’re missing out on so many of the rituals. But the second thing I think of is how your class will be remembered maybe more than any other. I’m hoping you’ll take a little time to tell me what you’re thinking and feeling right now. You can answer all or just one of the questions, whatever works for you. And if you think some of your fellow seniors would enjoy being interviewed, please share this with them.
Every year in our July issue we highlight the Best of Louisville. Usually that means burgers, barbers, boutiques, etc., but this year we are dedicating Best of Louisville to you and the rest of the class of 2020. You deserve it.
Thanks so much,
Editor, Louisville Magazine
