It's just about the end of graduation season, and tonight the Alton High Class of 2012 will make the walk to the stage. About 420 students will graduate this evening at the high school gym, beginning at 7pm. School officials ask that those with tickets to the gym be in their seats by 6:50pm. Doors open at 5:30.
Seating is first come first serve for those with tickets to the gym, then overflow seating will be allowed in the auditorium as well as in the high school commons. Assistant Principal Mike Brey says the tradition of the outdoor graduation ceremony was nice at Public School Stadium because everyone could attend, but the indoor event has worked well:
Each graduating student received four tickets for family and friends to sit in the gym and if you attend tonight and want to sit in the gym, you must have your ticket. Again, the doors near the auditorium and gym open today at 5:30pm at Alton High. If you'd like to watch the ceremony on your computer, follow the link: www.riverbender.com
