Since the onslaught of COVID-19, many of life’s most exciting moments have been pushed back or canceled altogether, including high school and college graduations. All hail LeBron James. The NBA champion and humanitarian teamed up with XQ Institute and the Entertainment Industry Foundation Partner to host Graduate Together: America Honors the High School Class of 2020.

The hour-long special will feature a commencement speech from President Barack Obama. Zendaya, Lena Waithe, and Yara Shahidi will also be a part of the student’s big day.
