PHS Graduation Moves Due To Class Size

Updated:

The Pittsburg High School senior class has 214 students preparing to graduate on Saturday, May 19th at 2:00 p.m. Graduation is usually held at high school, but not this year.

Due to the size of the senior class, the Pittsburg High School decided to partner with Pittsburg State University to host graduation at John Lance Arena (1701 S. Homer Street). School officials say the move will eliminate the need for a ticket system for families.

"Graduation is a time to spend with family and friends as students start the next chapter in life," Phil Bressler, PHS Principal, said. "We recognized the need for additional space and are thankful to Pittsburg State University's President Steve Scott and Athletics Director Jim Johnson for giving us the opportunity to accommodate our Dragon family to celebrate this special day."
