Graduation Clarification

As some of you are aware, there is an e-mail circulating and a "Letter to the Editor" in the newspaper regarding a student not being allowed to wear his military uniform for graduation. There are inaccuracies in the letter.

It is the policy of Wawasee High School to allow graduating students who are members of the military to wear their uniform along with their cap and gown to commencement exercises.

Clarifications in response to the email and letter to the editor:
1. The student was at Wawasee High School visiting with former teachers this week.
2. The student was in uniform and did have lunch and visit with his friends at the school.
3. The student would have been allowed to wear his uniform to graduation along with his cap and gown.
4. The allegations in the e-mail were made by a parent who lives in Michigan without the student's knowledge or consent.
5. In March the student had committed to attend his brother's graduation to be held the same night.

No matter what you have heard, these are the facts. We appreciate the concern of those who have contacted us.

Congratulations to the Wawasee High School Academic Super Bowl team who placed third in the state competition over the weekend! That is quite an accomplishment since they compete in the top class based on size of schools in the state.

Penn High School won the social studies competition, and Columbus East High School placed second.

Wawasee's team members and coach Mary Lou Dixon put in many hours of work preparing for this competition.
