Class of 2020 - A lesson for the Green Industry

Episode Summary

Sharing what the Green Industry can learn from the Class of 2020

Episode Notes

This short episode came to me as I was preparing for my son's 8th grade graduation. Like any parent with a child graduating during this pandemic, it's easy to get caught up with the unfairness of missing out on the graduation ceremony and all the pomp and circumstance. But I see students from all over embracing the new normal and making the best of the graduating in the midst of social distancing.

I dedicated this episode to my son, who doesn't show signs of disappointment. He excelled with distance learning and graduated with his class online. It made me realize, as an industry there is a lesson we can learn from the Class of 2020.

The new normal continues to unfold each day and we've all had to adapt to make things work. The  Class of 2020 demonstrates that the new normal is what we make it. Even during a crisis like Covid 19, we can embrace it and make it work. Being connected, staying essential and creating new paths. Congratulations Class of 2020 and thank you to the next generation of green industry professionals.
