Like many schools this year, COVID-19 has radically altered graduation plans for those ready to receive their diplomas.

Wabash High School (WHS) has been no exception, and their tentatively scheduled date was confirmed Wednesday by Jeff Galley, assistant principal of Wabash High School.

The 147th WHS graduation ceremony is set to begin at 7 p.m. Friday, July 31 on the Honeywell House Lawn.

“Please note that due to current COVID-19 restrictions, guests will be required to have a ticket,” said Galley.

Galley said each graduate will be allowed four tickets.

“Replacement tickets will not be available,” said Galley. “Attendees are also asked to practice social distancing and are encouraged to wear a face mask.”

Parents and guardians will need to receive tickets from the seniors themselves.

Seniors can pick up the tickets at the high school office from 8 to 9 a.m. Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday at the WHS office.
