The graduation will be held at the Chattanooga Convention Center in Chattanooga, TN. Doors will open to the public at 5:00 pm.
To maintain safe social distancing practices we will be providing each student with a total of 5 tickets for their guests and they will be distributed to the students at the rodeo event that morning.
We will also have a live stream of the graduation ceremony available at a private link that will be sent out closer to the event.
Our rodeo will not have any limitations to attendance but a mask or facial covering will be required to attend the rodeo and graduation. With the continued spread of COVID-19 throughout the country and increased numbers here locally, we are doing our best to create the safest environment for all attending. Thank you for your understanding.

We ask that all guests continue to comply with the following:
