ACHS to have virtual graduation

Appomattox County High School will hold a virtual graduation on May 27 and 28.  

ACHS Principal Poldi Moreno said he would be releasing an official overview of the plans in the coming days. Informational letters have already been sent out to 2020 graduates and parents. 

Appomattox County Public Schools Superintendent Annette Bennett said the school is working hard to make this year's graduation special for the seniors who have seen their school year come to an early close due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

The virtual ceremony is set to be held at Bragg Stadium with graduates and their families walking at scheduled intervals. 

Bennett said that a live stream of the event is possible but is still being worked out.
