Stephanie Rowe, a senior at Concord High School, speaks to the school board expressing wishes to hold an in-person graduation ceremony.

DUNLAP — Concord Community Schools officials may reconsider their decision to hold a virtual graduation ceremony after several parents and students expressed their disapproval of the move.

The district originally planned on hosting an in-person commencement ceremony at the University of Notre Dame’s Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center in South Bend.

Of course, now that they have already had the virtual ceremony, there's a fair chance that some of those won't want to go thru it again. As with most boards, they do what THEY want to do and not what their students/constituents want to do.....There are many intelligent parents in the community, why not get their input 1st before going off half cocked....
