‘We wanted to spread joy’: Parents start local Adopt a High School Senior groups

posted by:

The buildup to graduation starts when Class of 2020 seniors are just little kids.

“Those 12 years lead up to this kind of big ending, and to miss out on that big ending is definitely really sad,” said Ponderosa High School senior Shaye Springer.

Ponderosa High School is located in Parker near Parker and Bayou Gulch roads.

Springer said she thought her final semester would be special right now. Instead, it’s over.

“On my way to work, I just started crying,” Springer said. “I was so upset, just one thing on top of another, you know.”

That feeling is why Sheli Silvius, a mother of a senior at Ponderosa, started her own version of an Adopt A High School Senior Facebook group in Parker.

“We really wanted to spread joy and happiness for seniors,” Silvius said.
