For high school seniors, the coronavirus pandemic has thrown their long-awaited end-of-K-12 plans into turmoil. Graduation ceremonies, yard parties, proms, senior trips: All are off for the moment due to the statewide school closure and stay-at-home order.

… Karla Lopez thought she was all set. She was finishing up her credits online at Grand Rapids University Preparatory Academy, and was ready to enroll in Grand Rapids Community College with a Promise Scholarship providing two years of full tuition, books and fees. She looked forward to graduating with her classmates in May and being the first in her family to attend college.
