Olivia Ellis– Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOO RANCH, FL) – The LRHS Graduation has been scheduled for Saturday due to weather complications.
Due to expected inclement weather on May 20, the graduation ceremony will now take place the following day at 11:30 a.m. May 21 at LECOM park.
The gates will open at 10:30 and the graduates will begin lining up at 11:00.
Graduates must arrive before then to allow time to get checked in.
While the time change doesn’t affect some students, there are others who it affects greatly.
Senior Aldan Rossnagel says, “Ultimately, I don’t really care what day graduation takes place on; either way, I’m excited to close the door on this chapter of my life as great as it’s been, and more forward.”
Senior Matthew Boudreau says, “It’s frustrating because my grad party was at the new scheduled time, and we had to reschedule catering and change all our plans at the last minute.”
LRHS Principal Dustin Dahlquist said everyone needs to prepare for whatever weather may come.
“Please bring rainy weather gear for your graduate, you, and your families as there is still a chance of showers,” he said.
