Corinth High School’s Class of 2021 will take their last walk as seniors next weekend during commencement ceremonies.

Graduation will take place on Saturday, June 5 at 2 p.m. at the Crossroads Arena. Doors open at 12:30 p.m.

“We look forward to holding our graduation ceremony to honor the hard work of the graduating Class of 2021,” Corinth School District Superintendent Lee Childress told the Daily Corinthian. “We are excited they have achieved this milestone and wish them success after high school graduation.”

Tickets will not be required for admission to the ceremony and there will be no capacity restriction on attendance, according to CHS Principal John Barnett.

“We do encourage all attendees to wear a mask and practice social distancing to mitigate the risk of spreading COVID-19,” he said.

Before Saturday’s graduation, the school district will host an academic awards night on Tuesday at 6 p.m. The ceremony will be held in the high school gymnasium. Face coverings will be required for entry and social distancing will be enforced.

Corinth will be the final local school to graduate its senior class this year.

The Alcorn School District held graduations on May 15 with all three country schools – Alcorn Central, Biggersville and Kossuth – hosting their commencement ceremonies on the same day.
