Here are Cherokee County’s graduation plans

Start

Cherokee County School District’s Class of 2022 will walk across the stage for graduation ceremonies next week.

The ceremonies for Cherokee County’s 2,936 graduating seniors will once again be held at First Baptist Church of Woodstock at 11905 Highway 92 in Woodstock. The ceremonies will be streamed on www.fbcw.org so family and friends who are unable to attend still can participate.

This year, there will be no limitations on the number of guests per senior, ending the pandemic practice of ticketing.

Next week’s ceremonies also include a first for the school system, the inaugural graduating class for i-Grad Virtual Academy, the district’s new online school that launched this school year for grades 9 through 12. The school will expand to serve grades 4 through 12 next school year.  

“We look forward to celebrating with our entire community next week, as our students would not have reached this important milestone without our community’s support,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said. “Graduation is the highlight of the year for me and our School Board as we congratulate every one of our amazing 2,936 graduates. We can’t wait to see all that the Class of 2022 will do to make our community and world a better place.”
