High school seniors across Southeast Alaska are graduating this weekend, from tiny Angoon, with four graduates, to the largest class in the region at Thunder Mountain High School.
This is the fourth graduating class from Juneau’s newest high school, which opened in 2009.
One-hundred-seventy-three seniors will get diplomas on Sunday, while 142 are graduating from Juneau-Douglas High School.
JDHS was once the largest school in Southeast Alaska. For the first time this year, Thunder Mountain enrollment surpassed Juneau-Douglas.
Sunday’s ceremonies begin at 1 p.m. at Centennial Hall, where 40 students will graduate from Yaakoosge Daakahidi Alternative High School.
TMHS commencement is at 4 p.m. in the gymnasium.
JDHS graduation begins at 7 p.m. in the gym. The JDHS Video Crew will once again televise the ceremony live on GCI Cable channel 6. It also will be streamed on the JDHS Video Program website. DVDs of the event can be purchased
The annual Safe Graduation party is at Centennial Hall from 10 p.m. to 2:13 a.m. for graduates of all three Juneau high schools.
Congratulations to Juneau’s graduates. Stay safe.
