Bowie High graduation moves into gym

Bowie High School Principal Kelly Shackelford said the decision has been made to move inside to the gym for graduation ceremonies on Friday night due to concerns about rain. The previous plan announced earlier in the week remains in place with one exception requested by the seniors.
Each senior will get 10 tickets, which provides 1 seat each in the gym on a first come basis.
Shackelford said some seniors need more tickets and others needs less, so they are working that out sharing among themselves.
Overflow will be set up in the cafeteria with a large screen tv providing a closed-caption stream of the ceremony. Doors open at 6 p.m. If there are any seats that remain just prior to the ceremony, those in the overflow will be allow to take those seats. Ticketholders must be seated in the gymnasium by 7:45 p.m. in order to secure a seat. Graduation begins at 8 p.m.
