Chattooga High School will have two indoor ceremonies today.
The first ceremony will start at 7 p.m. and each graduating senior will have 14 tickets, Chattooga County Schools Superintendent Jimmy Lenderman said.
They will clear out the gymnasium and the second ceremony will be held at 9 p.m. Tickets would be required to get into the gymnasium.
“We will be running it on the screen in the cafeteria so the school will be open for anyone to observe it in the cafeteria if they didn’t have a ticket,” Supt, Lenderman said.
Students can do whatever they want with their tickets to give others more or less.
Students with last names that begin with A through J will be at the 7 p.m. graduation and students with last names that begin with K through Z will be at the 9 p.m. graduation.
“We do encourage people to park at the middle school,” he added. “There will be buses provided to go back and forth for transportation.”
The ceremony will begin with “Pomp and Circumstance” by the CHS Band led by Director Gene Greer as the seniors come into the stadium.
Meagan Perry, President of the Student Leadership Team will welcome those in attendance. The invocation will be given by Nicholas Eli Lloyd Abernathy, of the FCA leadership.
After the National Anthem, CHS Principal Jeff Martin will recognize the special guests, board members and superintendent.
A Challenge to Seniors will be given by Zachary Ian Gilbreath and Miss Kaley Nicole Wright, Mr. and Miss CHS.
Kaley Nicole Wright will give the salutatory address.
A choral selection, “A Million Dreams” will be presented by the Chattooga High School Chorus led by Jason Hall, Director.
The valedictory address will be given by William Alexander Huskey.
