Mingus Union seniors to graduate Friday

Jon Hutchinson
Staff Reporter

More than 200 Mingus Union High School Seniors will graduate Friday evening.

Some will stand out and speak on stage and be singled out for their accomplishments, like Valedictorian Allysun Veilleux Dube, and Salutatorian Robert Valentine. But everyone wearing a mortarboard and their family members will celebrate in the same way, with unrestrained enthusiasm.

High School graduation is, after all, one of those milestones everyone remembers and celebrates. Usually, they tell each other they are ready to get on with their lives, but later they remember those exciting times and lessons later in life.

The ceremony begins at 7 p.m. on the football field. But the gates will open at 5 p.m.

Seating is first-come first served, whether in the open seating in the bleachers or the reserved on-field seating for those holding a ticket. In case of rain, families will be notified by the school phone message service and on the radio.

A note distributed to graduating students and parents repeats the cautions that come with unrestrained enthusiasm, asking students and parents to keep the ceremony serious and dignified.

Appropriate dress is requested for both graduating seniors and visitors

Because of the size of the graduating class, the number of guests such as parents or siblings is limited on the playing field along with graduating seniors.

Each graduating student is allowed two tickets each. Those who don't used the tickets are asked to recycle them so others may use them.

Parking is always limited with such a large crowd. In addition to the high school parking lot, parking is also available at the Faith Lutheran Church and at the Fry's grocery.

Maxine Banks will deliver the Student Body President's address followed by the valedictory and salutatory addresses.

Senior Class President Braeden Wills will order the Changing of the Tassel and seniors will parade into their lives' next chapter.
