  • Alert:

    Due to a substantial increase in positive COVID-19 cases within Jones County, social distancing requirements, and lack of an appropriate venue available, there will be no “in person” graduation ceremony. We had hoped a live event would be possible, but we are thankful to have had the opportunity to recognize the Class of 2020 with our graduate drive thru and virtual ceremony. Thank you all for your understanding and support as we continue to navigate these changes together.
