As another school year quickly draws to a close, graduation seems to be the topic on everyone’s minds and the word on everyone’s lips. This year’s commencement ceremony, which will take place on June 3rd at 7:00 p.m. at the DuBois Area Middle School, promises to be the continuation of a long line of quality programs organized by assistant principal Jeff Vizza.
The graduation ceremony itself will take place in the middle school gymnasium. Because space is limited, seniors will receive six tickets, four for the gym and two for the nearby auditorium. Seniors will walk through the auditorium on the way to the gym. The ceremony will also be streamed live to a screen in the auditorium and on the DuBois Area School District website.
Vizza attributes the ceremony’s success and high quality to several years of careful tweaking. “It’s a pretty nice ceremony we’ve put together in the past three to four years,” he says.
As for this group of graduating seniors, one of whom is Vizza’s eldest daughter, he says that it has been, “a very enjoyable group to work with throughout the year. I think that this is a fantastic group of seniors just because of the way they have stepped up and become leaders in this building.”
Whether they are family, friends, or just familiar faces, this year’s graduating class will surely be missed.
