Countdown to the Graduation Ceremony:

Every senior who participates in the graduation ceremony must:

  • Meet the course requirements of the state of Tennessee (see student handbook or appropriate counselor).

  • Have a BHS cap, gown, tassel, diploma, and cover, at a cost of $52.00, payable to Jostens no later than April 1, 2013. Seniors, of course, may order other items from Jostens, but these are the minimum requirements. Students graduating with honors (meeting all ACT benchmarks) will incur an additional charge of $9.00 for an honor cord. Student graduating with distinction (see student handbook/counselor) will incur an additional charge of $12.50 for a stole. Students in good standing with the Academic Excellence program will incur an additional charge of $6.00 for a medallion.

  • Be present and on time at the practice on Friday, May 17, 1:00 PM at Murphy Center, or the student will not be able to participate in the graduation ceremony.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Students who have met or will meet the requirements for graduating with distinction (requirements are listed in the student handbook) must notify his/her counselor.
