2023 Commencement Ceremony

Graduation is on the horizon and it’s time to start preparing for that very special day that is all about you. Please mark your calendars with a few important dates:

June 16, 2023 – HHS Graduation

June 14, 2023 – Mandatory Graduation Practice

Graduation practice will be held in the HHS gymnasium from 9am – noon. All graduating seniors must attend. Please note that graduation tickets will be distributed at graduation practice. Tickets will be required for all guests attending the graduation ceremony.

Jostens is now accepting orders for caps, gowns, announcements, and graduation gear at jostens.com. Jostens has put together a short video walking through how to order your graduation gear on their website. Additionally, Jostens will visit campus during all school lunches on December 8th and 9th to collect orders. Please note that honors cords and tassels will be purchased in the spring when caps and gowns are delivered to Hickory High School. The deadline for ordering caps, gowns, and announcements is December 15th. This ensures your items arrive on time and that you receive the best price. Should you have any questions about ordering a graduation appeal, contact Jostens directly at 800-JOSTENS (1-800-567-8367). We are looking forward to celebrating the graduating class of 2023!
