To honor the Class of 2020

Del Rio Queens utility player Kelly Smith, seen here during the Queens’ only district home game this season, is one of many seniors whose high school athletics career came to an early end due to the closure of schools.

A show of solidarity by the local public school district for its students is scheduled to take place Friday evening.

Tuesday night, the San Felipe Del Rio CISD rolled out a video announcing a “Beacon of Light” ceremony. The intent of the ceremony, which is scheduled to begin at 8:45 p.m. on Friday, is to show students that the school district is still thinking of them as this time of uncertainty continues. The lights will remain on for one hour, according to a video released by the school district.
