Willamette Graduation Moves Indoors

The weather forecast has forced Willamette High School’s graduation ceremony to be moved indoors.

The current forecast from the National Weather Service calls for a 70% chance of rain Friday with the possibility of thunderstorms, resulting in the difficult decision to hold the graduation ceremony in the Main Gym. We anticipate a full house.

  • Doors will open at 5:45 with the ceremony staring at 6:30. Saving seats is not permitted in any of our venues.
  • Limited Space: Due to the limited number of seats, only gold tickets will provide admission to the graduation ceremony in the Main Gym. Each graduating student has been provided 6 gold tickets. Please understand that unfortunately there can be no exceptions.
  • Live Stream Viewing Parties: Many families are wisely considering viewing parties from the comfort of their homes or in satellite locations. The link for the live stream is:

  • Willamette Live Stream Viewing: The ceremony will be broadcast via a live stream in Powers Auditorium and the West Gym. Only White tickets will gain admission to these two venues. You must have a white ticket to enter a streaming venue. Space is limited in these locations and as such, seats will be provided on a first come, first served basis. Saving seats is not permitted in any of our venues.

This will be the first time since 2012 that WHS seniors have held their graduation indoors. Historically, an indoor ceremony happens about every four or five years. Nevertheless, our previous graduates have shared with us that an indoor graduation provided a more intimate space for their commencement and that it was a memorable experience.

We are all looking forward to sharing in this opportunity to honor our seniors.
