Cap and Gown

Seniors who are participating in the Spring graduation exercises, your caps and gowns (and other Herff Jones orders) were delivered today.  If you have paid in full, you may pick up the cap and gown from Mrs. Jernigan's office.  If you have not paid, please bring cash or a money order for the full remaining amount.
