Interim Superintendant Bill Adams posted this morning on Facebook that after much deliberation, a survey completed by the Class of 2020 MCHS seniors and consulting health officials, they have reached a final decision on graduation plans.
Adams posted the following, "Greenwave Nation: As a former MCHS principal I understand how meaningful the MCHS graduation ceremony is for this entire community. It is a true celebration of the Greenwave family and it saddens me that we will cannot safely have a traditional ceremony in May. But, we have worked with senior leaders and health officials and together we developed a ceremony that will celebrate our graduates now and give them hope for a traditional ceremony at a later date if safety guidelines permit. More specific information will go directly to seniors, but please email me directly at email@example.com or call me at 270-422-7500 if you have any questions."
Meade County High School posted shortly thereafter on Facebook with the following:
"SENIORS!! We are ready to celebrate you! See the information in the post below, but Commencement Cruise 2020 is a go!! We have specifically developed this so that you can be celebrated! Our staff will be present to cheer you on. More details will come in your Senior packets you are picking up on Saturday, but here is what we need from you on May 22: Decorate your car! Decorate your caps! Take pictures in your cap and gown with your decorated vehicle and family! Post pictures using hashtags #WeAreMeade and #CommencementCruise2020 We are so excited to get to celebrate you in May. We are also excited that we have plans for a traditional ceremony in the future, if allowed to do so. We can't wait to see you again!!"
