Canby High School Tees Up ‘Decision Day Live Show’ for Class of 2020

Canby High School is continuing its celebration of the Class of 2020 — from a distance — this week, with a virtual “Decision Day” live show celebrating seniors’ plans for their next steps in life.

“Decision Day is about celebrating what their plans are for after high school,” Sue Winner, CHS College and Career Center coordinator tells the Canby Now Podcast. “Whether the student is going to a university, community college, trade school, going into the military, a mission or right into the workforce, we want to celebrate them all!”

Last year, the College and Career Center held its first live Decision Day event in the senior hall during lunch.

“We had music, Menchie’s yogurt, swag for students, photo booth, words of wisdom to the underclassmen, a ‘where in the world’ station and a ‘thank you’ station,” Winner explained. “It was a lot of fun, and we are planning on continuing with this tradition.”

Of course, the show must go on, or as they say in 2020, “The show must go on…YouTube.” The career center has pivoted to a virtual Decision Day show, which will play live at 7 p.m. Friday. The show will feature clips of students sharing their plans for after high school and thanking a staff member if they choose.

There will also be a slideshow for those who completed a questionnaire but did not submit a video. Also, a few surprises that Sue made us promise not to tell. (Sorry.)

The show starts promptly at 7 p.m., and will wrap up just in time for this week’s Be The Light observance at Cougar Stadium. Check it out at the link below.
