Marion County High School Graduation Ceremony Information

Weather Permitting!

Please read carefully.

           After much thought and consideration, as well as parental and student input, the Marion County Board of Education, Superintendent, Principals, and other administrators have decided to alter plans for the Marion County High School 2020 Graduation.  The school system will honor its graduates with a physical ceremony at the school campus on Saturday, May 23. The Seniors of 2020 will have the opportunity to ‘walk’ across the graduation stage of Eagle Field in a modified-traditional format that is SAFE and minimizes contact.

            Pictures and videos of each senior will be taken during the ceremony and will be viewable on YouTube after editing. 

            Seniors should plan to inform school personnel on May 14 when they pick up caps, gowns, etc. whether or not they plan to participate in the ceremony.  Those who choose to participate must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Seniors must arrive ten minutes before their specific time slot and must be dressed in cap and gown as specified below.
  • No more than 4 people may accompany the Senior onto the field.  Additional guests must remain in the car.  Only one car per Senior is allowed.
  • Park in the designated lot at your specified time.  You will be notified by school personnel where to park and when to exit your car.  You will then enter the field through the back gate beside the field house.
  • If you arrive a few minutes early, you should park in the student parking lot until time to move to your designated parking area.  Please try to be 10 minutes early.
  • Once the Senior and his/her guests (4 max) enter the field, the guests will be directed to a designated standing area on the field. The Senior will proceed to the stage steps and wait for his/her name to be called over the PA system. He/she will then walk across the stage and pick up a diploma cover from the table on stage. (Note: the Senior will have already received his/her actual diploma on May 14 when he/she picks up caps and gowns, etc.)
  • Pictures and video may be taken at this time.  The school will provide a photographer to take a photo of each Senior receiving a diploma.  The Senior will be notified when the photo is available for purchase. A family picture can be taken immediately after, and then you will need to exit the field using the designated gate.
  • Faculty, staff, and sheriff’s deputies will be on hand to assist you and to make sure this runs smoothly.
  • Please do not distract, play loud music, honk horns, etc.  However, painted car windows are encouraged!

 *What do I wear under my cap and gown?

Please remember…this is a uniform.  You should all look alike.  No distractions!  You should wear all collars, stoles, cords, and medallions with your cap and gown.  Scholars Academy collars go underneath the honor stole.  Please have your tassel turned to the left.


  • White dress shirt, black slacks, solid black tie (no bowties!), black shoes, and black socks
  • No necklaces or any other items of jewelry/adornment are allowed outside the shirt.  Only petite earrings are acceptable.  No other visible piercings allowed.


  • Any color dress or skirt (shorter than your gown)
  • Black low-heeled shoes or wedges (not flip-flops)
  • Petite jewelry only, and no other visible piercings allowed!
  • Honor graduates—Red gowns will not hide dark colors or “loud” prints.


All school personnel will be wearing masks and gloves; the wearing of masks and gloves by Seniors and their guests is left up to personal discretion.

Weather permitting: If there is light rain, this ceremony will continue as scheduled.  Heavy rain/storms would cause the ceremony to be postponed until Sunday or Monday.  The ceremony will not be moved inside.

WTVM/WXTX will also air a separate, virtual tribute to our graduates at a time TBA.
