Final grades are being tallied and gowns fitted as approximately 358 seniors are set to graduate from local high schools in Alcorn County this year.

“I would like to congratulate each of the 2014 graduates for this accomplishment. I encourage them to remain steadfast in reaching the goals each has established,” said Corinth School District Superintendent Dr. Lee Childress. “The future is bright for each one and I look forward to seeing their continued success.”

The following high schools in Alcorn County will be holding graduation ceremonies this month:

• Corinth High School will graduate approximately 130 high school seniors during their commencement ceremony on May 23 at 7 p.m. at the Crossroads Arena.

• Alcorn Central High School will graduate approximately 90 high school seniors during their commencement ceremony on May 22 at 7 p.m. at the Crossroads Arena.

• Biggersville High School will graduate approximately 38 high school seniors during their commencement ceremony on May 19 at 7 p.m. in the Biggersville High School Gymnasium.

Another page is turning and a new chapter begins as students transition from adolescence to adulthood.

Some will continue on to college while others will go straight into the workforce.

Whatever their paths may be, the graduating classes of 2014 are filled with hopes, dreams and future potential.

"The 2014 seniors of the Alcorn School District are a talented group in many areas. They have excelled in academics, athletics, and in their service to the community. These seniors challenged themselves and through their accomplishments have challenged their younger peers to raise the bar," said Alcorn School District Superintendent Gina Rogers Smith. "The 2014 seniors as a whole have more ACT scores above a 25 than recent years. Their determination and work ethic has given this group a distinction in the classroom as well as in the band halls and the athletic arenas. We look forward to learning of the future successes that this diligent group will achieve. We have been blessed to share in the experiences and success of these students."
