Friday, May 27, 2022 at 8:00pm at R.E. St. John Memorial Football Stadium, 247 seniors from Kilgore High School will walk across the stage to receive their diplomas. Having the ceremony at the stadium allows for many family and friends to attend to see their graduates without having to limit crowds with tickets.
Due to ongoing renovations at the stadium attendees must enter through the gates on the west side of the stadium, closest to S. Martin St. Gates will open to the public at 7:00 pm and seating will be available on both the home and visitor sides of the stadium. To access the visitor side, attendees will come through either side entrance, through the bottom of the home stands, behind the south end zone and enter the visitor stands from the south end. Access to the visitor stands will be closed at 7:55 pm and any late arrivals will need to find seating in the home stands. Also, there will be portable restrooms available for use between the entrances to the stadium and the entrance to the visitor stands.
To alleviate any congestion, only graduates and stage participants will be allowed to enter through the back gate entrance. Following the ceremony, family members and other attendees are welcome to gather on the field for photos with their graduates.
