East Coweta High School will hold the final public high school graduation for 2018 on Saturday morning.

East Coweta’s graduation will start at 9 a.m. at Shoemake Stadium at ECHS. East Coweta is scheduled to have 660 graduates out of the school system’s total of 1,500.

The valedictorian at ECHS will be Jenny Oh, and Suji Han is the salutatorian.

The school system is encouraging people attending the ECHS graduation to use off-site parking at Lee Middle School, Willis Road Elementary School and Poplar Road Elementary School. Parking lots will be available at 7 a.m. with shuttle buses providing transportation to and from the ceremonies, according to Dean Jackson, public information officer for the Coweta County School System.

“Handicapped parking is available on the main campus, but those needing it are encouraged to arrive early,” Jackson said. If rain forces commencement to be moved indoors, each graduate will have a limited number of tickets.

Newnan High School’s graduation is tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Drake Stadium on the NHS campus.
