Washington and McLean Schools Hold Commencement Exercises

Ceremonies held at Terre Haute South High School for seniors from both schools.
Graduation ceremonies took place Friday night for two Vigo County schools.

Seniors at Washington School received diplomas at Terre Haute South.

Then thirty graduates of McLean High School were rewarded for their hard work during commencement exercises, also at Terre Haute South.
The word "alternative" has been dropped from McLean High School's name.  It is intended to show that students there should be respected for completing their education amid difficult circumstances.
Students with a variety of issues attend McLean and to successfully complete the requirements is something to celebrate.

Principal Scotia Brown says, "It's a major victory because often times when our students come and parents come and go through enrollment they're really apprehensive about the school because of the stigma. But, it's because they don't know who really we are, but once our students come and become a part of the McLean family they do well and they flourish in our environment."

Vigo County Superintendent Danny Tanoos lauded Mrs. Brown and her staff for the performance of all the students at McLean High School.
