Due to the inclement weather forecast throughout the week, the graduation ceremonies for both Sonoraville High School and Gordon Central High School are being changed and relocated with new dates or times. These changes are to ensure that as many family members and friends can actively participate in the ceremonies instead of having limited seating and online-only options. The Class of 2022 for GCHS and SHS will celebrate their graduation ceremonies at the Dalton Convention Center on Wednesday, May 25th. Sonoraville High School will have its ceremony at 4:30 p.m. and Gordon Central will have its ceremony at 8:00 p.m. Sonoraville High School graduates will transition out of the Dalton Convention Center shortly after their ceremony ends, and Gordon Central High School graduates and families should arrive promptly at 7:00 p.m. Bus transportation will be offered and provided for both high schools in the event of families being unable to drive to the Dalton Convention Center. The Dalton Convention Center is located at 2211 Tony Ingle Parkway, Dalton, GA. More information will come out tomorrow after all details have been discussed and finalized. We appreciate our community’s understanding as Gordon County Schools continues to support and seek ways to ensure a larger audience has access to each child’s graduation ceremony.
