Saluting Excellence: Celebrate all Metro Schools graduates, valedictorians and salutatorians
With less than a week to go until graduation ceremonies begin, students, families and teachers across Nashville are preparing to celebrate the outstanding achievements of every Metro Schools graduate. There will be 26 ceremonies held in arenas, school auditoriums, college campuses and even the Grand Ole Opry house in a two-week period, April 12-26.
IMPORTANT: Due to forecasted rain, Stratford STEM Magnet High School has moved its graduation to the TSU Gentry Center.
