McKenzie High School to Hold Graduation May 17

Size of Audience to be Limited

Posted

(April 16) McKenzie (Tenn.) High School is holding graduation for the seniors of 2020 on Sunday, May 17, 3 p.m. at the MHS Gymnasium. A backup date of May 30, 3 p.m. is the alternate date.

Schools are out for the remainder of the year because of the pandemic.

Kelly Spivey, principal, wrote the graduation will include appropriate social distancing between attendees. Each senior has six tickets to give to family and friends to attend the ceremony.

There was speculation the class of 2020 would be denied a formal graduation ceremony because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Spivey wrote, "We are doing this because we want to have graduation. I know this will make some families have to make tough choices, but we must remember it is more about allowing the seniors to have their opportunity to graduate more than anything else."

The ceremony will be streamed live on Facebook.

Baccalaureate ceremonies are canceled for 2020.
