The possibility of inclement weather this Thursday and Friday has prompted officials to move some of Columbia County’s graduation ceremonies.

Harlem, Lakeside and Evans High Schools will no longer have commencement ceremonies at Evans Towne Center Park as planned those two days.  They’re being moved to the Columbia County Performing Arts Center.  Harlem’s ceremony is at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, and Lakeside’s graduation will be held at 8:30 a.m. Friday, while Evans’ seniors will graduate at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets will be required for entry to all ceremonies at the Performing Arts Center.  Each school will get 1,900 tickets to distribute to graduates.

Saturday ceremonies for Greenbrier and Grovetown High School seniors will still be held at Evans Towne Center Park.  Greenbrier’s ceremony will be delayed though until 10:00 a.m.  Tickets are not required on Saturday.
