Edmonson County High School will hold their annual commencement ceremony this Saturday, May 20, 2017 in the ECHS gym. Principal Tommy Hodges says 129 seniors are set to receive their diplomas at the event which is expected to be standing room only. The number of graduates is the exact same as last year's class of 2016.
Over the past several years, school personnel has made an effort to shorten the ceremony while spotlighting students only.
"We'll have no special guests or recognitions," said Principal Hodges. "We let the seniors have the stage. It's their day."
The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 2pm. Doors will open at 1pm.
