The world is still severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Large gatherings are impossible at this moment, which is why graduating students can only settle for a virtual ceremony.

 

 
Former U.S. President Barack Obama headlined the event “Graduate Together: America Honors the High School Class of 2020” which aired on several media outlets on May 16, 2020. One of the special guests included Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James.

James’ off-court work is just as great, if not greater than his on-court accomplishments. The Lakers forward is not afraid to speak his mind on certain societal issues and makes it a point to share his blessings to the community.
