Ga. Board Votes to Hold Graduations at Church

Ad Feedback

A school board in Georgia has decided high school graduations will go on as planned in spite of some controversy over the venue.

Cherokee County high schools in Woodstock have held their graduation ceremonies at the First Baptist Church since 2005.

Recently, Americans United for Separation of Church and State expressed concern over the ceremonies' location.
Despite the group's complaints, the school board voted this past weekend to go on holding graduation ceremonies at the church.

They reasoned that the 7,500-seat sanctuary was big enough to seat the graduates' friends and families and at $2,000 per graduation, it was also the school's cheapest option.
