Graduation 2021 Announcement

MVTHS Administration and Senior Class sponsors would like to announce the 116th Annual Commencement Exercises for the MVTHS Class of 2021 will be held on Saturday, May 22, 2021 in Ken Hunt Stadium on the MVTHS campus at 2:00 pm. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this Senior Class will be the first and only Class to experience graduation in this setting.  A return to Changnon Gymnasium is planned for 2022.


As stated earlier, the ceremony will begin at 2:00 pm, barring any weather-related delays.  Due to IDPH restrictions, graduates will receive three tickets each to distribute to friends and family.  Additional tickets will not be available due to capacity limits.  Individuals without tickets will not be admitted into the ceremony.


A graduation practice will be held Friday, May 21, 2021 at 8:30 am in Changnon Gym.  Graduates will receive their caps and gowns and spectator tickets at the end of the practice.  Before caps and gowns and spectator tickets may be picked up, all student debts must be paid.  Student debts may be paid in person in the Main Office or online at www.mvths.org.


All graduates are expected to remain for the duration of the practice; adjustments to work or other schedules should be made in advance. No family members or guests are permitted at the practice.  Many pieces of information for the ceremony will be given at the practice, including expectations for attire and procedures for the ceremony, so it is very important to attend.


Graduates should plan to arrive at the ceremony on May 22, 2021 no later than 1:10 pm and meet in Changnon Gym.  If IDPH restrictions change, adjustments to the ceremony will be announced at a later date.
