The 2015-16 school year is rapidly coming to a close, as is high school baseball, track and tennis competition. To avoid conflicts with state competition, graduation ceremonies for the four traditional high schools in Delta County have been moved to Sunday and Monday, May 15 and 16. Delta Opportunity School will recognize its graduates May 20, and Olathe High School will present diplomas May 22. Graduation ceremonies for Vision Charter Academy are May 26 (Delta campus) and May 27 (Surface Creek campus). A schedule of Delta County Joint School District #50 graduation and baccalaureate ceremonies can be found on page A9.
Look for the Delta County Independent's annual salute to graduates in next week's edition of the DCI.
