High school seniors are missing out on final milestones, performances and events that'd normally help mark the end of a signifcant chapter in their lives. For Shayla Stewart, a senior graduating from Western Guilford High School in Greensboro, missing prom is just one of the things she was looking forward to.

Stewart has been part of the school chorus and a capella groups, and is perhaps most disappointed not to hear her instructor, Jordan Lee, give a speech to her and the rest of the group's seniors after their final performance. It's a tradition she's seen him carry out each year, and from a teacher who she says has become more of a friend than just an instructor, it would have meant a lot.

Shayla Stewart is working on an EP, and plans to continue studying music at Guilford Technical Community College in the fall.
