LeBron James to host a virtual Class of 2020 high school graduation ceremony on CBS, ABC, NBC and Fox

Lebron James acted

Graduate Together: America Honors the High School Class of 2020 will air simultaneously on Saturday, May 16, on the four major broadcast networks, plus YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, TikTok, PeopleTV and Complex Network.

The NBA superstar is partnering with Laurene Powell Jobs’ XQ Institute and the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) to host the virtual graduation ceremony for the more than 3 million high school seniors in the U.S. James will be joined by a number of big names, including the Jonas Brothers, Lena Waithe, Megan Rapinoe, Bad Bunny and Malala Yousafzai.

“We learned early on in our work with students and families in Akron that education is so much more than academics. It’s about a shared experience, a journey we’re all on together — students, parents,educators, community members, and everyone around them,” James said in a statement.

“With that not being possible right now, we’ve been working to find ways to help families get through this really difficult time. These students have worked incredibly hard for this and there’s no way we can let that go unrecognized. While this won’t be the graduation experience they were supposed to get, we hope we can still give them something special because they deserve it.”
