SSHS Switching Up Senior Activities A Little Bit This Year

Sulphur Springs High School will be switching up senior activities a little bit this year, according to one school counselor.

The 12th graders ranked in the top 10 percent of their graduating class will still be honored this year with a special breakfast starting at 7 a.m. Thursday, May 20, with interior design and culinary arts students reported to be collaborating to ready the facility for the event. So, this could look a bit different.

Later in the day, seniors will be celebrated with a senior walk and assembly. Seniors will walk the halls in their caps and gowns, then will be celebrated by family and friends; this is expected to occur around 3 p.m. They will then proceed to the Civic Center Exhibit Hall for a “signing” time, where students will look for banners for designating the school, work force area or military that factor into their future plans following high school graduation.

From there, senior activities continue with an assembly at the Civic Center. Due to a scheduling conflict, however, this year’s senior awards program will begin at 4:30 p.m. May 20, instead of later in the evening.

The annual senior Shut Out will follow on Friday, May 21; students are to wear their senior shirts.

SSHS Graduation is slated to be held Friday evening, May 28, at Gerald Prim Stadium.

SSHS Counselor Leslie Harred welcomes seniors and their guests during the 2019 Honors Breakfast. This year’s event will be held Thursday morning at Hopkins County Civic Center in recognition of honor graduates.
