Union County Schools

Success for All

The gates to Mike Colwell Memorial Stadium will open for an outside commencement ceremony tonight at 6:00 PM or after the expected storms have passed. The Union County Elementary School gym, “The Pit,” will open at 6:00 PM for those who wish to wait out the weather prior to the ceremony. The ceremony is still scheduled to begin at 8:00 PM but please be aware that the start of the ceremony could be delayed due to weather conditions. Thank you for your understanding, and congratulations to the Class of 2024!
