Guests, Announcements and Accommodations
Guests are required to have tickets (including children) to enter the Pavilion building where the ceremony will be held on June 20th.  The majority of guests will be seated in the bleachers inside of the gym, which is located inside the Pavilion building.  Please be seated by 6:20pm.  Guests without tickets will be directed to a live video feed in Heiner Theater.  Last year we received many positive comments from guests who watched the live video feed in Heiner Theater.  Guests with children and those who want more comfortable seating and easy access to restrooms will appreciate Heiner Theater.

A professional photographer from Lifetouch National Schools will be taking personalized photos at the Pavilion as you line-up to receive your diploma.  Your photo will be taken as you cross the stage.  Lifetouch, our official commencement photographer, will have portraits available online at approximately ten days after the ceremony.  Celebrate your achievement with these professional portraits.  If you have any further questions please visit or call (800) 505-9496.
