Bring John Cena to Wilson High School Graduation 2017

This petition had 743 supporters

For many years, Wilson High School's Graduation has been held at the Santander Arena (previously the Sovereign Center). Due to an unfortunate scheduling mishap, the Santander is already booked for the first Saturday of June by WWE. Graduation has been this date for as long as anyone can remember and was published on the district calendar for Saturday, June 3, 2017. Many families have scheduled travel plans to attend graduation or travel after, along with many graduating seniors.

The district is letting the senior class vote on the date of graduation with the following options:

  • Keep this graduation date, but host it on the football field
  • Move graduation to Sunday, June 4 at the Santander. 

Although hosting in on the football field is not a bad idea, this presents the issue of inclimate weather and in that case, the gymnasium and auditorium can not accommodate to the size of the audience. As previously mentioned, many have already scheduled travel plans and Sunday, June 4 does not work for all students and their families. With all of this being said, Wilson High School's Class of 2017 deserves the opportunity to hear a motivational and inspiring speaker like WWE's very own John Cena. Mr. Cena will already be in town and although the scheduling mistake was not intentional, we would love for him to stop by at our graduation and offer some congratulatory words to Wilson's Class of 2017.

Please sign this petition and spread the word for the Class of 2017. Thank you!
