Another school year is headed for history and the Edmonson County High School class of 2016 are scheduled to walk the line this Saturday to receive their diplomas.
ECHS Counselor Michael Meredith said 129 students are on the list to graduate, with three of those students receiving alternate diplomas. "This year's class was third all-time in scholarship awards with a four year total of over 1.6 million dollars."
The ceremony has been scheduled for Saturday, May 28th at 1pm, according to Brian Alexander, Director of Pupil Personnel. The event was changed from night to afternoon a few years ago.
"Saturday afternoon has really worked well for graduations in the past," said Alexander. "More people had rather have them in the afternoon than at night, and the board feels like this is best."
