Event Info: Project Graduation is Friday, May 19, 2023
Graduation is a time filled with pride, a time to celebrate achievements, a time to make plans for the future. Statistically, graduation night is especially dangerous for high school seniors. A night meant for fun can easily turn into a tragedy. Thus, Project Graduation was born. It was established at Lemon Bay High School in 1990 as a way to educate and deter these young adults from drinking or taking illicit drugs while celebrating this special event.
Traditionally, Project Graduation is a FREE event for all of the Lemon Bay High School Seniors due to the gracious donations from our community. Most of the class attends the event which features, a variety of activities, entertainment, prizes, and a variety of food and drinks.
Project Graduation will continue to be held at Englewood United Methodist Church. It will start directly after graduation will continue all night until 5 am the following day.
The benefits of Project Graduation are:
- Keeps our graduates off the roads on the night of their graduation.
- Offers a safe option for those who choose to celebrate in this special way.
- Since its inception, there have not been any drug- or alcohol-related motor vehicle incidents involving members of our graduating classes on graduation night.
