A Crowning Achievement
The 2015 high school graduation season is under way and more than 10,000 MCPS students will receive their diplomas in commencement ceremonies that will continue through June 17. A variety of commencement speakers—ranging from elected officials to educators and musicians—will be speaking. Parents and students are invited to submit their favorite graduation snapshots to be included in our graduation coverage.
National and state political leaders are among those speaking at graduations, including U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, who addressed graduates from Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School on May 28, and U.S. Senator Benjamin Cardin, D-Maryland, who will speak to graduates of Walt Whitman High School on June 3. Graduates from Richard Montgomery High School will hear from U.S. Representative James Clyburn, D-South Carolina, on June 4, and Jennifer Fay, director of White House Personnel and advisor for Management and Administration, will speak to Wheaton High School graduates on June 8.
Graduations for 22 MCPS high schools will take place at DAR Constitution Hall and will be streamed live, courtesy of DAR, on DAR’s website.
MCPS is inviting parents and staff to submit their favorite graduation snapshots. Photos can be sent by email here and may be included in our graduation photo gallery.
Parents, students and staff also can submit photos via Twitter (using the hashtag #mcpsgrad).
