Early Graduation

There was a time in our lives when the idea of early graduation would have been greeted with wild exuberation. Actually, we still think that way. We're just having fun imaging teenagers at an 8 am commencement. That'll get'm ready for the workaday world!

Check out this story in the Flier:

Traditionally, Howard County graduations are held at Merriweather Post Pavilion, in Columbia, during the week after Memorial Day, which this year falls on May 26.

But due to the concert schedule at Merriweather, graduations are being held both before Memorial Day -- May 22 and 23 -- and after, May 29 and 30.

To fit in all 12 area high schools' graduations and accommodate the scheduling needs of Merriweather, two schools -- Howard and Reservoir -- will hold their ceremonies at 8 a.m.

Musical acts Duran Duran and Sheryl Crow are playing at Merriweather May 27 and May 28, respectively.
