SaulPaul hosted a virutual graduation for foster youth graduates. During the pandemic, this event was held to highlight the accomplishments of the Class of 2020 Graduates. The event was held through Facebook Live and received many comments from the students about how they enjoyed it.
SaulPaul has said, “The COVID-19 crisis has been hard on everyone. It is unfortnate for all graduating Seniors who aren’t getting to walk the stage. But, being a former foster youth myself, I think it stings even a little more for graduating foster youth who are being denied a proper graduation ceremony. So, me and some of my amazing friends are going to make sure they are celebrated properly.”
The event featured live music from DJ R, SaulPaul and congratulatory messages from sports figures like Tommy “Hollywood” Henderson, entrepreneurs like Emlyn Lee and radio show hosts like Steve and Amy. Even though things are a bit different for the Class of 2020, the event was able to bring together the community and share in their accomplishments.
