Warsaw, IN – Warsaw Community Schools will host an in-person commencement
ceremony for the Class of 2022 on Friday, June 3 at 7:30 pm at the Tiger Athletic Complex
(TAC) on Fisher Field. This is the third year for an outdoor commencement ceremony.
Organizers have a plan in place to address logistical considerations such as parking,
arrival time, procedures, and seating arrangements. With the assistance of the City of
Warsaw Police Department and School Resource Officers, graduation attendees may
arrive on campus from the SR15 or Logan Street points of entry and will be directed by
officers to designated parking lots. There will be no parking permitted in Tiger Circle.
Graduating seniors are to report to the Tiger Den through door #29 at 6:30 pm. Ticket
holders will be directed to the main entrance gate that will open at 6:15 pm. There will be
no standing permitted along the fences inside or outside of Fisher Field.
WCS leaders have developed a system to accommodate families who have a member
with a physical limitation and have contacted WCHS prior to Friday requesting an
alternative seating arrangement. With respect to safety concerns, WCS will only permit
ticket holders to remain on campus. Guests are asked to stay home if they feel unwell or if
they are a high-risk individual due to health concerns. WCS has arranged livestream
options for friends and family to access the graduation ceremony video and broadcast
with WIOE and News Now Warsaw. WIOE will livestream on https://wioe.com/site/. On the
homepage, there will be a choice titled, “Tiger Grad Video.” The video will be located at
the top of the video section and should begin playing automatically. If not, clicking any of
the video choices will launch the livestream. An audio-only production will be broadcast
on WLQZ, Z93.9FM. News Now Warsaw will host a livestream on the News Now Warsaw
Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/newsnowwarsaw.
The Class of 2022 commencement ceremony is expected to be approximately one and a
half hours. At the close of this special event, the main gate and the visitor’s gate will be
opened. Warsaw Community Schools would like to thank the WCS School Board, faculty,
administration, and community partners for their commitment to honor the Class of
2022 and look forward to this milestone moment with appreciation for each Class of 2022
scholar and their families.
