Janay Futrell, a Trigg County High School guidance counselor, said that seniors are taking finals this week and that final senior grades would be due on Friday. She said that she and Lori Wooton, the school’s other guidance counselor, would then use the grades to figure out who the valedictorian, salutatorian and honor graduates would be. She said these students should be known by the afternoon of Monday, May 19. Futrell said that 135 seniors were currently scheduled to graduate at the May 30 ceremony, which will be held in the high school gym at 7 p.m.
“Right now, we have 135 scheduled to graduate, although some are on the borderline,” Futrell said. “Teachers are working with those students to make sure that they do what they need to do.”
Futrell said that this year’s baccalaureate ceremony would be held in the high school gym at 7 p.m. on May 25. She said the event had moved back from its original date because several seniors were scheduled to leave for a trip to Europe on May 26. The trip had been planned long before electrical problems at the elementary school building and multiple snow days caused schools to close for a total of 10 days. Futrell said that those seniors would get a chance to pose for a photo pretending to be accepting their diplomas, but that they wouldn’t actually receive them until they got back from the trip.
