The gallery below features photos of decorated graduation caps that were submitted by the Melissa High School Senior Class of 2020. Some seniors also provided some background information on what inspired their cap design.
"I wanted to do something that was simple but also representative of who I am. I loved this design and thought it was perfect for the situation we are in today. We all have struggles in our lives but it cannot stop us from doing what we are called to do."
"It represents how much my dogs mean to me and that everything I do is for them."
"I plan to attend Tarleton State University in the fall where I will Major in Accounting and Minor in Businesses Administration."
"I would have not made it through all the trials and tribulations if it weren’t for God."
"My cap design represents my loyalty and love to my success. It also represents my loyalty to my future success and my dream to help people as healthcare provider."
"I am going to East Texas Baptist University to pursue nursing and softball!"
"This quote really felt appropriate for graduation, considering we all thought we would not be having a graduation ceremony, but God prevailed and allowed things fall into place to give us the day many of us have dreamed of for so long."
"Russ Vitale (RUSS) is my favorite artist of all time, a mainstream rap artist that I’ve been a fan of ever since the beginning of his music stardom. He has very simple but clean album covers for his music albums. It’s typically a symbol and the diemon logo on the bottom which is what I went for with a graduation cap for my graduating 'album cover'."
"My design represents my future and personality."
"This design represents my future plans."
"It’s a Supernatural quote."
"It's not complete yet, but mainly it's to signify that even those who think it'll be a breeze for them and don't want to try will eventually be overwhelmed in the end. Mainly to combat against procrastination."
"The cap design has post-high school plans because I am attending Ouachita Baptist University, which is the Tigers. It also has a Bible verse that represents my call to ministry, serving the Lord."
"I’m going to A&M next year!"
