Exira-EHK Graduation

They will still have caps and gowns for graduation, but this year’s Exira-Elk Horn-Kimballton graduates won’t have a standard graduation.

ELK HORN — Exira-Elk Horn-Kimballton High School Seniors will celebrate graduation with a Commencement Parade and Ceremony on Sunday, May 31.

The seniors and up to four family members will line up at the Exira school, and a parade through Exira to Brayton, Kimballton and finally Elk Horn, ending up at the school building. There, graduates will exit their cars, one at a time, receive their diplomas and will have time to take pictures in front of a Trojan backdrop with family. The ceremony won’t include an audience, or speakers, but graduates will be able to move their tassels and pose for pictures.

The Class Motto is “Now you’re seeing 2020.”

The senior class flower is a white carnation, speckled with maroon, and senior colors are maroon and grey.

In addition, Prom, rescheduled for June 13, has been cancelled.

After meeting with the parents of junior class students in the district, on May 25, officials decided to cancel the 2020 Prom, scheduled for June 13.

Superintendent Trevor Miller said the decision was due to restrictions on school sponsored activities until at least July 1.

“As a result of the meeting, the group decided that a school sponsored prom will not be held on June 13. Please look for information from the junior class parents about next steps,” Miller said.
