Noisemakers, air horns and balloons are not welcome at ceremony

Taft Union High School will hold its 102nd graduation ceremonies in Martin Memorial Stadium at 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 4.

The ceremony will include a multimedia presentation where the audience may watch graduates projected on two giant screens as they receive their diplomas. The presentation will also include still photos of the graduates.

Families and guests are instructed to leave noisemakers, air horns and balloons at home. "Our goal is for every student to enjoy the moment when they receive their diploma and for everyone in the audience to clearly hear the student’s name as it is read.” Superintendent Blanca Cavazos explained, "We want this to be a dignified ceremony worthy of the work our seniors have dedicated to earning their high school diploma."

Graduating seniors must be at the south bleachers by the swimming pool by 7 p.m. Main gates for guests will open at 7 p.m.
