Graduation delayed by weather

Mother Nature could only delay the Class of 2018 for about an hour Friday night as commencement ceremonies took place in the rain soaked stadium despite a steady drizzle and an occasional flash of lightning. A total of 177 DeKalb County High School seniors were given the right hand of fellowship and a high school diploma by Director of Schools Patrick Cripps and Principal Randy Jennings. The event went on minus the high school chorus and band which evacuated the field when a severe thunderstorm struck campus, dumping torrential rain and hail.
