ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Isotopes are giving high school valedictorians a unique opportunity. The team is hosting the first part of its “A Speech of Their Own” series on Wednesday.
The initiative allows high school valedictorians to deliver their speeches on the Isotopes field. Wednesday, a senior from the Early College Academy gave her speech.
She says she’s grateful for the chance she didn’t think she’d have. “The class of 2020 has missed out on a lot but I think this has given us some great opportunities to reflect on all of our blessings and all of the great opportunities we’ve had throughout high school,” said Abigail Perce.
Valedictorians will be giving speeches all week. Those speeches will be recorded and air on the Isotopes Facebook page as part of their “Stadium Memories” series.
