SHARE NOW

SYLACAUGA Ala.- Talladega County School seniors have been informed they will have a commencement ceremony.

Last week, Gov. Kay Ivey eased COVID-19 restrictions in the state of Alabama allowing a day that most seniors look ahead toward, will happen.

Talladega County Board of Education Superintendent Suzanne Lacey announced that high schools, county wide will hold graduation on May 21 at 7 p.m.

“Throughout this pandemic, our students have been a top priority,” said Lacey. “With senior banquets being canceled, we were devastated. Being able to hold a close to traditional graduation ceremony for our seniors is a dream come true.”

Each school will be expected to follow Gov. Ivey’s orders maintaining 6 feet social distancing between students and families.

Schools holding the ceremony outside will be allowed four tickets per graduate, while schools holding the ceremony indoors will be allowed two tickets.
