The possibility of moving graduation ceremonies off campus for Heritage and E.C. Glass high schools has come before the Lynchburg City School Board following comments from students and parents at both schools.

School board member Belle Evans said she’s received several comments from family members of students at E.C. Glass regarding the need for more graduation tickets.

“It takes a village to raise kids, and they should be able to see them graduate. … I just hate the idea of whoever you want to see graduate, I want them to see you graduate. I don’t want to tell you ‘you only get six tickets.’ It’s a huge step, so I’m a big supporter of moving it where everybody can attend,” Evans said during Tuesday night’s school board meeting.
