Jenna Knepper ‘21: As Romeo High seniors prepare for the end of the school year, several activities take place to send seniors off and prepare them for their future ahead. Romeo High School’s Baccalaureate, being one of those activities, takes place on Wednesday, May 29.
The Baccalaureate service creates a time for graduating seniors and anyone else who wishes to attend to take part in a church service and listen to an inspiring speech from Roger Bennett, the principal at Amanda Moore Elementary School. Attendees also listen to live music from a contemporary Christian band.
This Romeo High tradition gives seniors the chance to win scholarships. For simply attending the service, seniors get placed in the running for a $500 scholarship handed out during the ceremony.
Seniors also get the chance to win gas cards and other various gifts such as a $250 visa gift card from the Romeo Kiwanis and the Baccalaureate committee.
The ceremony takes place at 7:00 p.m. on May 29 and the Romeo Baccalaureate Committee encourages friends and family to sign up for the service ahead of time but feel free to show up without signing up to still enjoy the event.
Romeo Baccalaureate Committee strives to inspire students during the ceremony and send them off with a strong mindset to make smart decisions in their future. Seats fill up fast so if you or anyone you know wants to attend this years Baccalaureate service, go to romeobacc.com to sign up and reserve a seat.
