Seniors of 2008 prepare for graduation

           Graduation seems so far away, but before seniors know it, they will be walking across that stage getting their diplomas handed to them in one hand and shaking hands of important people who have pushed, pulled, and even dragged them to the platform called success. Graduation this year will be held on Friday May 16th.

 After graduation at 10:30 p.m., students have been asked to attend 2008 Project Graduation which is being held throughout the U.S. and has been in Batesville for a couple years now.

Seniors are allowed to invite one person who must be at least in the 9th grade to attend Project Graduation with them. The students will be let out at 5 a.m. the next morning with breakfast provided and prizes awarded.

Project Graduation was put into action around the United States to avoid drinking at graduation after parties and also any other substance abuse. Graduation may seem like forever away but seniors will be taking semester tests and be attending their last days here at BHS sooner than they realize it.
