For the first time in more than 50 years, LaRue County High School commencement is scheduled to be held outside this year.
The 160 graduates are scheduled to receive their diplomas at Hawks’ Football Stadium in an 8 p.m. ceremony on May 24.
“This year’s senior class has been an advocate all year long for this move,” said LCHS Principal Paul Mullins. “The last couple of years we have experienced extreme heat in the gym. In fact, last year it was so hot the walls and even the floor on the stage were sweating.”
