More than 4,200 Chesterfield County students will receive their high school diplomas during graduation ceremonies June 8-11 at VCU’s Siegel Center.
Tickets are required to attend graduation, but the Village News will have in-depth coverage of schools in our readership area in our next issue. It will be a refrigerator hanger for sure.
Ceremonies will be shown live on Comcast Channel 96. Also, each graduation will be re-broadcasted exactly two weeks later on Comcast Channel 96 and on Verizon Fios Channel 26.
