WATER VALLEY – The WVHS Class of 2014 will don the blue caps and gowns and walk across the platform at Tad Smith Coliseum Tuesday night.
The North Mississippi Herald and the Water Valley business and professional community honor the graduates with a special section inside this week’s newspaper and also as part of the online edition.
At press time Tuesday, 69 seniors were scheduled to complete their high school years, but that could change pending the outcome of final exams Wednesday through Friday of this week. Also, honor students won’t be named until early next week.
Graduation activities will begin at 7 p.m., according to WVHS Principal William Cotton. “It’s going to start at 7 p.m promptly,” Cotton emphasized.
Although there won’t be a shortage of seats, the principal recommends coming early enough to find the seats you want. The Coliseum’s doors will open at 6 p.m.
Once the ceremonies have concluded and the graduates have tossed their caps, parents and friends will be allowed on the floor to snap pictures and congratulate the grads.
Thursday, May 22, is the last day of school with staff development days set for Friday, May 23 and Tuesday, May 27.
While one group of students is leaving for the last time, others who will be returning can begin the registration process for the 2014-2015 school year. Registration will be held at both Water Valley High School and Davidson Elementary School Friday, May 23 and Tuesday, May 27 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The required documents are posted on the Water Valley School District website-www.wvsd.k12.ms.us or parents can stop by the school office for a registration packet.
