UCHS seniors to don caps and gowns Sunday

UCHS seniors to don caps and gowns Sunday

Members of the Class of 2012 at Union City High School will don caps and gowns Sunday evening in preparation for receiving their diplomas at 8 at War Memorial Stadium on the campus. In the event of inclement weather, the celebration will be moved indoors to Union City Civic Auditorium at the same location.
Ushers for the event will include Caleb Long, Joseph Shanks, Walker Barnes, Colton Beeler, Abram Carroll and Emery Whaley. Honor Marshals will be Tara Elam and Jenna Miller.
Morgan Stone, class president, will provide the welcome and invocation. Ashlyn Chism will address the gathering as salutatorian and John Kirkland will give the valedictory.
UCHS principal Wesley Kennedy will present the class and Union City School Board chairman Glenda Caudle will award the diplomas, with Union City Director of Schools Gary Houston announcing the acceptance of the class as graduates of UCHS.
Members of the class are requesting that their guests honor a tradition that has set a high standard for dignity and respect at such an important time by refraining from shouting or making other disturbing noise. Such activity detracts, they feel, from the importance of the occasion and can interfere with a graduate’s proud moment. Instead, families of each graduate will be asked to stand with solemn pride as their UCHS Class of 2012 member is announced and steps forward to receive their diploma and hear their honors and/or future plans announced.
A time of general applause will mark the end of the ceremony for all the new alumni.
Members of the class have received in excess of $890,000 in scholarship offers.
