HAWTHORNE, NJ - Local businesses sent their best wishes and congratulations to the graduating class of 2020 via video released Tuesday.  The idea was the brainchild of Dr. Zachary Berman of Embrace Family Orthodontics, who asked Hawthorne businesses and community figures.to send in video segments extending their congratulations to the graduates.

"These times are truly unprecedented," Dr. Berman told TAPinto Hawthorne, "we just wanted to spread love, encouragement and congratulations to the graduates. The video was made to let all local graduates know that the town of Hawthorne is thinking about them and stands united with them. As an orthodontist I had a lot of graduations, each one had a substantial impact on my life that I remember. Even though the students will not have that graduation experience surrounded by friends and family, hopefully the graduating students will remember this video and take it with them to the next stage of their lives."

The video can be found on YouTube and also on the Embrace Family Orthodontics Facebook page.
