More than 330 seniors will graduate Friday at a 7 p.m. ceremony in the school's stadium.
In case of inclement weather, the PRHS Class of 2011 will hold the graduation ceremony indoors in the auditorium. Graduates will be notified by 5 p.m. by the district's rapid-call system if that is the case.
The auditorium has limited seating, so each graduate has been given two tickets for his or her guests. Additional guests will be able to watch the ceremony via live television from multiple locations in the high school or through their cable provider in the Pine-Richland School District.
Nearly 290 seniors in the Class of 2011 will be pursuing advanced degrees at 90 different campuses, five are military bound, three are attending technical schools, three others are entering the musical field and two are returning to India and Portugal after participating in the foreign exchange program, according to information provided by Pine-Richland School District.
More than 370 scholarships totaling $6.6 million-plus were awarded to members of the Class of 2011 -- nearly double the amount obtained by the Class of 2010, the district's website states.
The Class of 2011 has 10 national merit scholars -- these students will wear the Superintendent Star Award for their outstanding scores on the PSAT. A total of 1.3 million students took the test, and Pine-Richland High School has 10 students who scored among the highest 34,000 test takers. They are National Merit Finalists and Commended Students.
In addition, nine students completed Pine-Richland's inaugural Air Force Junior ROTC program.
