In a ceremonial event aimed at recognizing this year’s graduates amid COVID-19, the City and school officials will place more than 400 lawn signs, each with a photo of a Trenton Central High School (TCHS) graduating senior, on the high school grounds along Chambers Street between Greenwood and Hamilton Avenues. It all happens this morning (Wednesday, May 27, 2020, 10 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.), City of Trenton Mayor W. Reed Gusciora, Trenton Central High School Principal Hope Grant, and TCHS Alumni Association President Maria Jones will celebrate the Trenton Central High School graduating class of 2020.
When the COVID-19 public health emergency cancelled the school’s graduation event, the Trenton Central High School Alumni Association and Trenton Public Schools with support from Mayor Gusciora, collaborated on new ways to celebrate student achievement, resulting in the lawn signs that honor the entire class, as well as individual graduates.
The event will take place at Trenton Central High School, 400 Chambers Street (between Greenwood and Hamilton Avenues). In attendance will be Mayor W. Reed Gusciora, Trenton Central High School Principal Hope Grant, Trenton Public Schools Interim Superintendent Ronald C. Lee, and Trenton Central High School Alumni Association President Maria Jones.
Just about ten months ago, Trenton’s new $155 million Trenton Central High School campus, opened the doors to a beautifully designed facility with thoughtful elements from the school’s historic past. With its massive hallways, open spaces and technological advancements, the school is hyper-focused on meeting the needs of more than 1,800 students; promising to prepare young Trentonians for a world of glistering opportunities.
