See the High School Graduation Trend That’s Making the Internet Cry

As the class of 2024 graduates and the school year comes to a close, there’s a new trend happening on social media that has all of us sentimentals feeling unwell over how fast time flies.

Jenn Wilson, a communications coordinator at Louisville High School in Ohio, came up with the idea. The video enlisted current kindergarteners (the class of 2036) as well as the class of 2024.

“Over the past few months, every parent I’ve spoken with has said the same thing: ‘In the blink of an eye, your kids are grown,’” Wilson told TODAY.

The video, which has garnered viral attention, is appropriately captioned: “Louisville High School Class of 2024. Don’t blink!”

Principal Tausch, who posted two variations of the trend in honor of the class of 2024 (and the class of 2036) says the videos made him emotional, especially the part where the now-graduates go back and bring the kindergarteners along with them. 

“The visualization is very powerful,” Tausch says. “It’s that quick and they’re gone.”
