Final Kennedy graduation Friday

5/10/2012

The final graduation ceremonies for Kennedy Middle School in Hays are set for 7 p.m. Friday at Beach/Schmidt Performing Arts Center in Fort Hays State University's Sheridan Hall.

Ninety eighth-graders will receive certificates, then return to Kennedy to a gym decorated by parents, who sponsor a party for outgoing eighth-graders. This year, the party will serve as a two-fold farewell -- Kennedy will close at the end of the school year.
