While every student in Marshall County watches the days count down to summer, seniors are busy planning graduation.
Marshall County High School’s commencement is scheduled for May 21 at 7 p.m in the gymnasium.
“We’re doing things a little differently than we have been in the past, and having graduation on the last day of school,” principal Amy Waggoner said. “We let our students vote if they want to have graduation on the last day of school or the weekend. This year, they chose Tuesday.”
Class Night will be on Monday, beginning at 6:30 p.m.
“At Class Night, we will be honoring our seniors, recognizing scholarship winners and those that will be joining the military,” Waggoner said. “We’ll be giving some class awards and recognizing their achievement in different subjects. We’ll recognize our honor graduates and those that scored well on tests. At the conclusion of the awards, we’ll have a talent show.”
On Friday, seniors will celebrate with a brunch at 9 a.m. prepared by the school’s family consumer science department. After that, they will proceed to graduation rehearsal.
Waggoner expects 305 students to graduate.
Just south of MCHS on U.S. 68, Christian Fellowship School seniors are preparing to graduate Saturday at 4 p.m. at the Christian Fellowship Church auditorium.
Freda Rowley, of CFS, said 20 students are scheduled to receive diplomas. A reception will follow in the gymnasium.
CFS awards night will be Thursday in the church auditorium.
