Facebook page returns for Class of 2022


staff report

Attention members of the Ben Davis or Ben Davis University Class of 2022: A community-based Facebook page has returned in your honor.

The page is sponsored by two local community members who have ties to Ben Davis. It began two years ago as a way to honor the class of 2020 seniors after Covid sent all students home the week before spring break. Last year, more than 600 Ben Davis High School seniors were adopted through the page.

The page is a Facebook page called BDHS/BDU Adopt A Senior Class of 2022. The idea is simple. If you are a member of the Class of 2022, you post on that page a description of your life in high school, a few photos and a community member will adopt you. After being notified on the page of your adoption, you are to reach out to that community member, who will present you with some gifts between now and graduation.

The page was created two years ago as a way for the west side community to reach out to graduating seniors in an effort to show your community cares.
