Crothersville High School Plans Drive-In Graduation Friday

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in Indiana schools closing and students completing assignments via eLearning. Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb’s executive order closed school facilities through June 30. For the Crothersville High School Class of 2020, graduation will be outside like a drive-in movie.
Crothersville school administrators have decided to conduct an outside drive-in-style graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020 at 7 p.m. this Friday, May 22, near the student parking lot on the south side of the school along Preston Street.
Each graduate will be allotted two parking spaces. The first assigned spot will be somewhere in the front two rows closest to the tent and podium and will be for the participating graduate and their immediate family. They will be assigned an additional spot for a vehicle with occupants of the graduate’s discretion further back in the lot.
As some graduates like to decorate their caps, CHS Principal Adam Robinson also encourages them to decorate the top of their vehicle.
The parking lot will open at 6:30 p.m. with “Pomp and Circumstance” playing. The ceremony will consist of a welcome and announcement, salutatorian address, valedictorian address, remarks and presentation of graduates, remarks and presentation of diplomas and transfer of tassels.
The principal said, “No one should honk their horns during the speeches, and graduates should not touch the podium when taking their diploma.”
Everyone will remain in their vehicles except graduates when they go up one at a time to receive their diplomas. People in vehicles are encouraged to clap and honk when their graduate goes up to the podium.
“There will be no pictures allowed by friends and family at the ceremony, so personal pictures should be taken at home,” Robinson said.
While this limits the number of in-person attendees, the ceremony will be broadcast via Facebook Live to give everyone an opportunity to see graduates receive their diplomas.
“Crothersville Community Schools pride ourselves on the ability to think outside the box,” Robinson said in a letter to parents and guardians of the graduates. “These are uncharted waters we are all navigating, and the restrictions given by our government leaders will be implemented and strictly enforced.”
With that said, officials have determined a way to still gather together as a community, school, class and family to celebrate the graduates.
“We know the importance of recognizing the accomplishments of the young men and women of the Class of 2020,” Robinson said. “They’ve worked their entire lives for this moment, and we will give them their chance to shine. We are incredibly excited and humbled to provide this experience to our seniors.”
After the graduation ceremony, there will be a parade of graduates through town. Police will provide an escort for graduates’ vehicles, giving the community members an opportunity to show support by waving at the graduates.
The route starts at the school and goes north on Preston Street to East Bard Street until reaching Armstrong Street or U.S. 31. The parade will continue until turning left on Moore Street and then turning left on Preston Street back to the school.

AHS To Have Individual Graduation Over Three Days Next Week

Austin High School will be recognizing the Class of 2020 seniors for graduation by appointment over multiple days. “While circumstances are not ideal, we believe this plan will honor each graduate and allow for celebrations among each family,” said AHS principal Ryan Herald.
Each senior and up to 9 family members will be given the opportunity for an individual graduation celebration in the Girls’ Gym. Each graduate will get their cap and gown and regalia on, walk across the stage, receive their diploma, and get their picture taken.
“The graduate should come dressed in their gown and wear suitable clothes underneath, as gowns will be returned when finished with pictures,” Herald said.
Graduates will be videoed and then they will have the option to take pictures with family members present. Each individual segment of graduates walking across the stage will be compiled into a ceremony to be aired on Facebook Live and the Scott County Community Channel on Friday, June 5 at 7 p.m.
“Each student and family will be given a 10-minute time frame to walk across the stage and then take a quick photo with the graduate together. Seniors will turn in their gowns and receive their diploma packet as they exit the building.
Appointment times are being assigned alphabetically for the three days of individual ceremonies from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on May 26-28.
Each family should arrive at their appointment time and walk into the entrance of the Girls’ Gym by the home locker room, which will be marked. Parking will be in the back lot closest to the gym.
The family will come in and stand in a designated area, graduate will walk across the stage and accolades will be read. Graduate and family will then proceed to the back of gym with their family and take a quick photo if desired and receive awards.
“Graduates will keep their cap, tassel, and each one will receive a graduate medal,” Herald said. “No one will be allowed back into the rest of the school building for cleaning and safety purposes.”
“Family members over the age of 65 are strongly encouraged to watch the ceremony on June 5 instead of coming to the ceremony,” the principal said. It is requested that family members wear masks to the ceremony.”
The building will be continuously sanitized and every effort is being made to limit exposure.
Students or parents with questions can contact the high school office at (812) 794-8730.

Uniontown Men Arrested For Theft Of Excavator

Jackson County Sheriff’s Deputies Zack Elliot and Clint Burcham arrested two men from Uniontown on Sunday, May 10 on charges of theft of a piece of heavy equipment.
The deputies were working with a Jennings County deputy investigating a theft report from that county which led them to question Brock Russell, 39, and Amos Fee, 35, both of the 2300 block of North US 31.
According to Elliott’s report, the deputies’ questioning of the men revealed that Russell and Fee had been in the Indianapolis area earlier in the morning of May 10 when their truck and trailer broke down.
“While fixing their vehicle they saw an excavator nearby at a construction site,” Elliott reported. “Once they fixed their vehicle they loaded the excavator onto their trailer and brought it back to their residence (at Uniontown) and hid it in some trees behind their residence.”
The equipment, valued at $40,000, was owned by McAllister Rentals are reported stolen Sunday morning. Deputes said they also located a generator reported stolen out of West Virginia.
Fee was charged with theft; Russell faces two counts of theft. Both were incarcerated around 3:45 p.m. on May 10. They made their initial appearance before Jackson Circuit Court Judge Rick Poynter on Tuesday, May 12.
Both men posted a $1,505 bond and were released from jail late last week.

Crothersville Flushing Fire Hydrants May 27

The Crothersville Water Utility will be flushing fire hydrants beginning at 8:30 a.m. next Wednesday, May 27, according to Chris Mains, water utility superintendent.
Residents should refrain from doing laundry as the discolored water could result in stains.
Mains said that annual flushing of water lines helps rid the system of accumulated rust and allows utility workers to check and maintain fire hydrants to insure they are in working order when needed for emergencies.
Mains said the flushing is expected to take most of the work day.

Scott County In-Person Absentee Voting Location Changes

In person absentee voting in next month’s primary in Scott County will be “in-tense”. Formerly planning to vote in the courthouse commissioner’s room, Scott County Clerk Missy Applegate said it will be safer, more easier to access and be more socially distance for in-person absentee voters to cast their ballot in the big green tent just north of the county jail at the southeast corner of the courthouse square.
In person absentee voting will be May 26 to 30 from 8:30 a.m.-noon & 1-4:30 p.m. and from 8:30 a.m. to noon on June 1.
“It will be easier to get in rather than everyone coming through the courthouse security door,” said Applegate. “We will have the ‘Vote Here’ banners located near the tent with 6 foot markers on the ground to follow CDC guidelines.”
