The e-mail with photo attachments couldn’t come fast enough. When it did, Adisa Subasic felt like it was 2002 all over again.
“I posted them right away,” Adisa said. “I was so excited.”
Adisa is a store manager at Store 3893 in Zion, Illinois. Earlier this summer, she organized a Class of 2020, graduation-themed event for the more than 30 high school seniors who work at her store. Her team hired a photographer to capture the unique memory: socially distanced, masked-up teenagers celebrating an achievement that’s been somewhat shadowed by a pandemic.
“He took, like, more than 100 pictures,” Adisa said.
For Adisa, the pictures offered a glimpse of a familiar time. She remembered wearing a cap and gown. She remembered wearing her first Walmart vest, too.
“It brought my memories back because I started with Walmart when I was 18,” Adisa said. “I started as a cashier.”
