Our presentation today was from Shelly Jones, who is helping plan this year’s Marshfield HS Project Graduation Event. There are 210 graduates in this year’s senior class. Project Graduation will be held at the MSU rec center. The costs are approximately $125 per senior. The students raised money by selling concessions and with the Dancing with the Stars event. Approximately $30,000 has been raised so far, but additional donations are appreciated. Every attendee of the event will leave with a door prize.
“A graduation ceremony is an event where the commencement speaker tells thousands of students dressed in identical caps and gowns that “individuality” is the key to success.” Robert Orben (b. 1927)
