Posted May 16, 2018 at 1:58 pm

The 101st Commencement Program at Clinton County High School is set to see some 120 young men and women end secondary education this coming Friday night a 7 p.m. Ceremonies will be held in the CCHS gymnasium.

The program will begin with the processional by the CCHS Band (guests are asked to stand as graduates enter the gym.) That will be followed by the presentation of colors by the JROTC Senior Color Guard.

The invocation will be given by Noah Miller, followed by the President’s History address from Billy Abbott and then a slideshow presentation from the Class of 2018.

Following the slide show, graduates will receive what most have waited over 12 years for, receiving their high school diplomas awarded by Clinton County Schools Superintendent Charlotte Nasief.

Following the awarding of diplomas, the Commencement ceremonies will conclude with the Tassel Ceremony by 2017-18 Class Officers, the benediction by Bailey Gibson and processional by the CCHS Band. (Guests are again asked to remain standing as graduates exit the gym.)

As always, several scholarships will be awarded including from businesses, colleges and universities, memorial scholarships and organization and individual scholarships.
