GHS drive through graduation updates

GRANTS, N.M. – Some slight changes have been made to the graduation plans for Grants High School. The graduation is still set for May 15, but the time has been changed from 5 to 4 p.m. This was done simply to add more cushion timewise because of the curfews that surrounding communities have established. The school is going about every detail of the graduation very carefully while also trying to make it as unforgettable as possible.

GHS to host a drive thru graduation

GRANTS, N.M. – COVID-19 has caused a lot of uncertainty, especially in regard to school events and graduations. Each school is taking different paths; some deciding to cancel these events altogether, some are postponing and some are getting creative to make it happen. Grants High School has chosen the latter, they have decided to have a drive through graduation. Principal Lane Widner of GHS held a Zoom meeting with the class of 2020 on April 16 at 1 p.m. to talk about this different graduation idea and how they would go about it.
