CHADRON – This is finals week at Chadron State College, although in a much different form since all classes have been held by remote delivery since Spring Break.
This Saturday was to be graduation with separate ceremonies for graduate and undergraduate degrees, but those have been cancelled because of coronavirus limits.
Instead, Chadron State at 10:00 AM Saturday will release a special commencement video celebrating both groups of degree recipients with hopes of holding in-person ceremonies later this year. The video will debut on CSC’s YouTube channel.
This Saturday was also to be the Chadron High School graduation, but it too was cancelled by the pandemic and replaced – at least for now – by a video on the Chadron Public Schools website showing all the graduates receiving their degrees. The video releases at 1:00 PM.
KCSR is also celebrating the Chadron High graduates with a special half-hour Graduation on the Air” starting Saturday at 12:30.
The broadcast will include Principal Jerry Mack reading the names of the graduates and the speeches by the valedictorian and salutatorian of the Class of 2020.
