The 129th annual Chesterton High School commencement exercises will be hosted on Thursday, May 30, at 7 p.m., at the CHS Football Stadium (weather permitting).

Student Government officers are Hadyn Malackowski, President of Student Affairs; Caroline Parks, Vice President of Public Relations; Braxton Martorano, Secretary; and Samuel Stricker, Executive Board Member.

Senior class senators are Jennifer Gillen, Jake Darmon, Sarah Harmon and Emma Olson.

Teacher PennyJo Morris will present the Commencement Address.

Other events of the day include presentation of honor students by Brent Martinson, principal; awarding of the diplomas by Judy Malasto, interim superintendent of schools; Monte Moffett, assistant superintendent, and the officers and members of the DSC Board of Trustees; and the traditional turning of the tassels and closing by Haydn Malackowski, President of Student Affairs.

Admission tickets will be required if commencement has to be moved to the gym. The doors at the gym will be opened at 6 p.m. Each senior will be issued up to eight tickets for his/her parents and relatives. Those not wishing to use all their tickets are asked to return them to the main office as soon as possible. They will be redistributed to those who request tickets for additional family members. This information will be announced at the school. If weather permits and commencement is held outside, these tickets will allow those to be seated outside as early as 5:30 p.m. General admission will begin at 6 p.m.

Special tickets are required for those guests who are physically unable to climb the bleachers. You may exchange your regular tickets for the special seating tickets in the main office. Special handicapped parking is available. It is recommended that seniors and those with mobility limitations be dropped off while other family members park the vehicle elsewhere.

A decision as to whether the commencement will be held inside or outside will be made on Wednesday, May 29. This announcement will be made to senior students and via local radio stations and newspapers.
