Be There: A guide to good graduation etiquette
COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Anticipation is growing as nearly 2,000 seniors embark on the next phase of their lives beginning this Friday.
It will be a busy few days at the Civic Center as hundreds of families and friends celebrate the Muscogee County School District's eight high school graduations. While it's a joyous occasion, it's important to also remember the rules.
We welcomed Valerie Fuller, communications director for the district, to our studios Wednesday to tell us about what we're calling graduation etiquette.
*Clap only after each row has been called
*Pictures taken from seats without obstructing views
