Graduation Details

Basic Information for Graduating Students
Graduation+Details

As the lights flickered and faded out, hundreds of students along with supportive family and friends filled the room with excitement and cheers. Students walk the stage with great anticipation as they hear their name being called out.  As the students look up, they see all of their friends and peers’ photos from years before til now, combined to make a memorable video album.

With graduation right around the corner, seniors and juniors are figuring out their next moves. Students leaving are excited to be out of school, and ready to hop into their dream careers. Graduation will be on May 25 at 11 a.m. in the South Gym. It would be appropriate to arrive earlier for instructions and proper seating. For seniors and juniors who don’t have much work to catch up on, their last day of school will be May 17, whereas remaining students’ last day of school will be on May 22.

It is mandatory for all graduating students to attend the practice graduation Friday morning at 9 a.m., but it is recommended to be at the High School at 8:30 a.m. to register everyone smoothly. Graduation tickets will be handed out at practice, and everyone is expected to receive seven tickets each. If students’ are needing more tickets, it is suggested to check in with peers to see if they will not be using all of their tickets. Tickets may be exchanged among other students but no one can get more than seven.

There isn’t a strict dress code, except dress formal underneath with cap and gown (non-optional). Many girls typically wear white dresses, and men wear formal attire with dress pants and white dress shirts. That isn’t a rule though, so if it is appropriate, wear it.

 Senior Taylor Kasten will be attending college at Indiana University Bloomington in the fall. Presumably after graduating college, she’ll head into law school from there.

“I think that with graduating, it might vary within some people whether they are sad or happy. My opinion, graduation is a good step in the right direction. It is a major accomplishment no matter what you choose to do,” Kasten said. 

After graduation, senior Victoria Hamilton plans on going to Purdue University. She will be in Purdue’s biology program studying ecology, evolution and environmental bio. 

“I’m feeling super excited but also a little nervous to graduate. I’m a little scared to leave Mooresville behind to go to Purdue, but I know I’ll do great,” Hamilton said.

The Dean of Students, Robyn Witty, shares inspiration to students who will be graduating. 

“Never be afraid to dream big. I think sometimes we sell ourselves short, and lots of times people start things new and they end up succeeding,” Witty said.
