Gulfport High School to honor class of 2020 with alternative plans for graduation

In celebration of the accomplishments and contributions the students of the class of 2020 have made throughout the years, the Gulfport School District and Gulfport High School has announced their alternative plan for Graduation.

The school will be showcasing the Class of 2020 in a traditional graduation ceremony that everyone will be able to enjoy. The students of the Class of 2020 will be remembered for years to come for all they have accomplished over the last 12 years as well as for the way they overcame obstacles during this historic time.

During the week of May 11th – 15th, each senior and up to four family members (parents and/or legal guardians only) will have a scheduled time to report to the Ray Bishop Auditorium. Each senior will have a cap and gown picture taken by a professional photographer. The Gulfport School District will purchase an 8×10 for each student as a token of appreciation. Each student takes the traditional walk across the stage to receive their diploma.

The school will take video footage and capture the moment each student walks across the stage and receives their diploma. The school will record each segment from the traditional graduation.

This will include the Marine JROTC Pledge of Allegiance, performance by a few members of the GHS Choir, recognition of the Valedictorian and Salutatorian, speeches from the Valedictorian and the Senior Class President, Senior Video, Presentation of the Class and the Senior Student Message will conclude the ceremony.

Each segment will be professionally edited and put together in order to showcase each senior in a traditional ceremony.

This video will be aired on on May 27, 2020, at 7:00 p.m., which was the original graduation date.

Students will be able to watch their own graduation for the first time in the presence of family, and it will also be available to the Gulfport community and any out of town family members.
