Get ready high school seniors! Oprah is going to be your host for a virtual citywide graduation ceremony:
“We are thrilled and honored to have the one-and-only Oprah Winfrey joining us for this incredible moment with Chicago’s high school seniors,” Lightfoot said in a news release.
“While we can’t recreate these in-person memories, I feel strongly that we need to recognize and celebrate the achievements of our many high school seniors in Chicago.”
Lightfoot teased the announcement Thursday morning via a Tik Tok video before officially announcing that Winfrey would be virtually attending.
So cool! See Mayor Lightfoot's Tik Tok with the announcement!
