Library Tower Lightings Celebrate Area School Graduations

April 29, 2020


JONESBORO – Eight area high schools were planning to hold their annual commencement ceremonies at Arkansas State University during the month of May.

In keeping with the practice began last year, A-State will light the tower of Dean B. Ellis Library in the school’s color during the evening before or the evening of the scheduled date for each ceremony, according to Chancellor Kelly Damphousse. 

“We want to continue to use this means to recognize each of these schools and the graduating students’ achievements,” he added.  This year’s ceremonies on campus had to be cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Seven of the ceremonies this year were set for First National Bank Arena, with the eighth at Fowler Center’s Riceland Hall.
