As high school graduations approach in Columbus, Ga., there are a few reminders for those attending ceremonies.

Muscogee County Communications Director Valerie Fuller says graduations typically last about two hours, and they are on a tight schedule.

Graduates should arrive at the Civic Center early for their line-up.

Family and friends are asked to hold applause until the end so that everyone's name can be heard. Audience members should also avoid any pranks, and wait to give gifts after the ceremony.

Andon Mack, a senior at Hardaway High School, says he will be attending Morehouse College and studying to become a cardiologist. He spoke to News Leader 9 about his high school experience.

"It gave me a foundation to learn from many different perspectives and to appreciate most of the classes that I take," says Mack. "I highly value the numerous lessons that they teach me though numerous classes."

For anyone not able to attend a ceremony in person, all Muscogee County graduations will stream live on WTVM.com.
