Katie Branch started this petition to Gaston County Schools

I am Katie Branch, a senior at Cherryville High School. It has always been a tradition to walk across the grass and now it has been taken away. Cherryville is a small-town school, with a little over 500 students total. Our school does not have the new facilities like some schools in the county. In my opinion, you cannot base having graduation on a brand new auditorium that is 3 years old. As seniors, we have the right to have a voice just as much as school board members. The disadvantage of having a smaller school is going to the local auditorium with limited seating so we have to pick between family members. I shouldn’t have to pick between my grandparents and my siblings. The advantages with having it outside is seeing everything going on, watching everyone walk across the grass, taking pictures with your family and not having to pick between them. This might not be BIG priorities to anyone else but its a big deal to a small town school. A small school is close and feels like family.
