Due to Covid-19 precautions, this year the Senior Excellence Night ceremony will take the form of a live video that seniors and their families and friends can watch from home on the Tyrone Eagle Eye News YouTube page. It will begin on Tuesday, June 1 at 7 pm.

The video event will include a photo slideshow of each member of the senior class, any honors, scholarships, or awards that each student earned, candid photos of the seniors growing up, as well as photos from this year submitted by members of the Class of 2021, the Eagle Eye News and the Eagle Yearbook class.

After the premiere, the video will be available on the Eagle Eye YouTube page to watch at any time.

TAHS business teacher Amanda Burega, who produced the video, says it’s one of her favorite parts of the year.

“It lets me showcase our seniors and their scholarships and honors using pictures and music,” said Burega, “This year’s video is extra special because this is the first group of students I taught since starting at Tyrone, plus my son [Tyler Vanish] is a senior this year.”
