Petition to have Manatee High graduation at Hawkins Stadium

This petition made change with 2,493 supporters!


Hello everyone. I am asking for your signature on behalf of the Manatee High School graduating class of 2020. Due to the coronavirus, our graduation has been pushed all the way to August 1st being held at the Convention Center. However, our long-standing tradition is to graduate under our own stadium lights on Joe Kinnan Field at Hawkins Stadium. To take pictures with our childhood friends in the gym before. To stay on the field afterwards and hug our loved ones as they congratulate us on our biggest accomplishment to date. To graduate in the place where we spent the last 4 years of our lives every Friday night. Our alternative idea is to hold our graduation on July 28th at 7 p.m at Hawkins Stadium to uphold our most loved tradition. In case of rain occurring, we then would keep our slot for August 1st at the convention center as a backup. Now I am asking for your help in signing this petition so we can show how many students and families want this change. We need to show how powerful our voices can be as one unit. Thank you.
