Announcements have been mailed, caps and gowns have been delivered, parties are planned and in just a few days, Clinton High School will recognize 117 seniors in the Class of 2022 who have qualified for graduation at a ceremony scheduled for this Sunday, May 15, at 2:00pm in the gymnasium of the school.
"We are excited to celebrate the accomplishments of the Class of 2022 with our commencement ceremony this year," Clinton High School Principal, Jarrod Steffens said. "This class has weathered a lot of adversity over the last 4 years and we appreciate their grit and perseverance to get to this point. Please join us in celebrating these young men and women!"
Invited speakers for this year's ceremonious celebration include Brian Tennal, CHS Biology instructor and students, Sophie Schilling and Ashley Berry.
The last 13 years have been a windy road traveled for many students, but the realization of this upcoming weekend's events is a surreal, but mostly proud moment.
Student body President and 2022 graduate, Noah Adams said, "The 2022 class has learned to overcome any obstacle in our way. I am proud of not only sticking through the hard times, but bringing the culture back after challenging times."
He added, "Clinton High School has been very accepting of its students and wants to see them succeed. Through high school, CHS has supported me and many other students no matter what we do. Whether it be a multi-sport or dual-sport athlete, being involved in theater and sports, or being a part of the band and sports, they support your decisions and efforts. I truly will miss the staff and faculty and all the support they have shown."
As seating is limited for the actual graduation ceremony, tickets will be required for entrance into the gymnasium during the commencement services. Seniors were asked to pick-up their allotment of 12 tickets by requesting them through the high school office.
Spectators without a ticket are invited to view a live feed of the ceremony in the Performing Arts Center, which is just adjacent to the gymnasium at the school. Guests are encouraged to enter through the main entrance of the high school on the south side of the building. Doors will open at 1:00pm. All gymnasium doors will be closed promptly at 2:00pm to avoid any possible interruptions of the ceremony.
Parking is limited at the campus, so early arrival and carpooling to the site is recommended by school administration.
A live broadcast of the ceremony will be available on the Clinton High School Facebook page, as well as Clinton High School’s YouTube channel (CHS Cards-Clinton High School Missouri).
Adams concluded by saying, "Being able to meet so many new people throughout high school has been such a great experience. Each person is their own selves and I can learn something different from each and every person. I am so glad I got to make so many great relationships and have been able to be a leader in the school."
And now it's his and the Class of 2022's turn to lead the world.
