The Mineola High School class of 2018 Commencement will be at Meredith Memorial Stadium on Friday, May 25 at 8 p.m.
The valedictorian is Austin Witt and the salutatorian Liliana Ramos.
Mineola High School Principal David Sauer said the MISD administration and the school board elected to have graduation at the stadium this year due to concerns about overcrowding in the gym.
The ceremony has been moved to 8 p.m. to help relieve any issues related to the heat and weather reports will be watched at the beginning of the week to determine if rain might be a factor. If rain is predicted, the district will make preparations to move the ceremony back to the gym.
Senior week includes the baccalaureate that was held yesterday (Tuesday), Today the senior trip is at Six Flags, and tomorrow graduates will participate in the “Return on Investment” event from 9 a.m. to noon.
Graduation rehearsal is also scheduled for Friday at 10 a.m.
