BUTTE COUNTY, Calif.- The coronavirus pandemic has cut senior year short for many graduating high schoolers. 

However, people in the community are stepping up to help them celebrate their achievements.

Luciana Crawford, from Chico joined the page "Butte County Adopt a 2020 Senior" on Facebook. 

"I was invited to it, I have a senior of my own and I thought it would be cool to add him to the page and make his day special," said Crawford. 

Crawford's son Daniel was also recently "adopted" on the page. 

Saturday morning Luciana Crawford delivered a gift basket to Gridley High School senior, Elise Horton.

"I have coffee cards, Sephora cards and goodies, all things to make her day special," said Crawford.

The Facebook group has almost 4,000 members and so far more than 750 local seniors have been "adopted."

"It's really nice people are out here thinking of us and recognizing what we are going through, it's really nice," said Horton.

Horton says the most difficult part is missing out on regular senior year experiences like "Senior Ditch Day" and signing friend's yearbooks. 

Her mother, Jennifer Horton said, "It makes me feel happy that people are acknowledging them when they've missed out on so much."

Elise Horton says she plans on attending Chico State and wants to become a dermatology physician assistant.

After plenty of morning clouds, we had plentiful sunshine this afternoon with weaker wind and warmer highs. The clear sky and light wind will lead to a chillier start Friday morning, and we'll have a breezy and mild Friday before more changes arrive.
