Exciting news!!!!!!! We have graduation dates to announce for our 3 high schools to have traditional graduation ceremonies. Our ceremonies will he held on our high school football fields, and we will maintain a 6 ft. distance between graduates and families. Our seniors will receive their honors, scholarships and accolades during our graduation ceremonies.
The Slocomb High School Class of 2020 will graduate on Newton Tew field on May 29, 2020 at 7:30 pm. In case of rain or bad weather, the alternate dates will be May 30 and May 31.
The Geneva County High School Class of 2020 will graduate on JD Chesteen Field at Dixie Howell Stadium on June 1, 2020 at 7:30 pm. In case of rain or bad weather, the alternate dates will be June 2 and June 3.
The Samson High School Class of 2020 will graduate in the Alva Hawke Stadium on June 4, 2020 at 7:30 pm. In case of rain or bad weather, the alternate dates will be June 5 and June 6.
The dates for each school were set based on when our schools have students leaving for military service.
We do not know how many guests will be allowed to accompany each graduate yet; we are working on that now. Since we are holding the ceremonies outdoors at our football stadiums, that allows us to accommodate more people. A stage will be set up in the end zone, and graduates and parents will be seated on the football field. Other family members and guests will be seated in the bleachers on the home and visitor side.
Thank you for your patience as we have had to work through unprecedented times to hold our graduation ceremonies. We will continue to update you as our plans are solidified.
