Peninsula graduation ceremonies coming up this month

Graduation and commencement ceremonies across the North Olympic Peninsula are set to begin Friday and stretch to Monday, June 18.

The region’s 10 high schools and Peninsula College will celebrate the Class of 2018 — marking the end of the 2017-18 school year.

Each school’s graduate count is subject to change, as state graduation requirement testing results and final class grades are received.

Graduate candidates may be added or removed from the ceremonies according to those results.
