We are excited to share our plans for Graduation 2022 to celebrate our graduates with our families and the community!
The following is an outline of graduation events and prices. We are planning the event based on current health guidelines and will be prepared to adjust if the guidelines change. At this time, we are hopeful for a typical graduation ceremony. Our event will be mask friendly and hand sanitizer will be available; however, there will be no gathering limit or proof of vaccine required.
