Hillsborough County to air graduation ceremonies

- If you can’t make it to a Hillsborough County graduation ceremony this year, you might be able to at least watch it on TV or online.  For the first time, the district plans to air and then archive all commencement ceremonies.

“High school graduation is one of the most memorable and life-changing days in a student’s life,” said Cindy Stuart, the school board chair. “It’s important that our families don’t miss this moment. Being able to provide live coverage to our families and knowing that we can help everyone to be a part of this celebration is truly an honor.”

Graduation ceremonies can be seen on the Tampa Bay Arts and Education Network, which is Spectrum Cable channel 635 or Frontier Cable channel 32.  They will also be online at http://graduation.hcpswebcasts.com.

If you’re going in person, the graduation ceremonies will still be at the Florida State Fairgrounds, of course.
