2020 Central New York Senior Salute Weekend
Times are tough, and no one is feeling it harder than our local seniors. When they left school in mid-March, they had no idea that would be the last time they walked down their high school hallways.
Here at Lite 98.7, we want to properly honor area seniors with The 2020 Senior Salute - and all of our radio stations are getting involved.
First Part- Valedictorian Or Featured Senior Speaker
We have notified local schools requesting their valedictorian, or featured senior speaker, videotape their speeches and send them to us. If your school hasn't contacted you, have them contact Townsquare at 315-768-9500. The speeches can be recorded on a cellphone held horizontally. The speeches should be between 10-15 minutes in length. Those speeches will then be featured on the websites of all of our radio stations. Speeches must be submitted by June 12th to be included.
We will randomly select ten speakers to come to The Stanley Theater to have their speech filmed. Safety is our number one concern during this time, so speakers will be invited to the theater one at a time, and proper sanitation measures will be taken in between each speaker.
Second Part- Senior Shout Outs
We want to hear from you. Parents or anyone who has a senior in the family can record a message of congratulations and encouragement for the senior. All of these messages will be played across our five stations during the last weekend of June. Messages must be submitted by June 19th to be included. Please limit your message to be 30 seconds or less. You can open our app now to submit your messages, or record them on your phone and upload them here.
