Keep the Honor Grads! Granite Hill's two-color graduation post-2018.

Recently, the conversation of the colors Granite Hills High School's graduates wear has come to light. Many feel as if our traditional four colors we have had in past years is too much. In agreement with those who feel four is too much, we as the students of Granite Hills would like to reduce the colors to two. Navy blue for regular grads (regardless of gender) and white for the honor grads. Honor grads have spent the past four years aspiring to wear the white gowns since freshmen year as a sign of academic achievement and have worked too hard for their achievements to go uncelebrated. Males and females should not be dressed in a different color than each other because the traditional Navy for boys and powder blue for girls conforms to a form of gender segregation amongst the student body. In addition, there are students at Granite Hills high school who are gender non-conformist, and who should have their decision not to conform to a certain gender respected by the school and administration. With the two colors, we could ensure that all regular grads would feel comfortable all in the same color, whilst the honor grads, those who have achieved a 3.5 GPA or higher, get the recognition they deserve. However, the senior class would like to point out that whatever change is decided upon should be implemented after this year since many of the seniors have already taken their pictures in a certain color gown. Many have paid extra money to be photographed in white, navy, powder, or royal blues and if the change is implemented this year, the vast majority of the senior class would not have matching gowns to their pictures.
