This is graduation week for nearly all our area high schools as Chadron, Crawford, Hay Springs, Hot Springs, Oelrichs, and Gordon-Rushville are all holding graduation on Saturday.
Sioux County held graduation on April 29, Hemingford held its this past Saturday, and Edgemont will send off the Class of 2023 on Sunday the 21st.
Graduation week at Chadron High School began last night with Baccalaureate in the high school Auditorium. Chadron High teacher Jill Paopao was the speaker.
Baccalaureate is not a school district event; it’s organized and put on by the Chadron Ministerial Association, which applies to use the auditorium the same as many other groups and events.
Honors Night, which is a school district event, is tonight at 7:00, also in the Chadron High School Auditorium.
The last day for Chadron High seniors is Wednesday with graduation practice that afternoon at 1:30 in the high school gym – which will host graduation itself Saturday at 1:00
