    Thespian Policy for GRADUATION CORDS! UPDATED
    At our last meeting a poll was taken and both sides of the graduation cord issue were discussed. The 2016 and newly elected 2017 board BOTH voted to raise the Honor Thespian requirement from 5 points per year to 7 effective starting September 2016. Please read full policy below.
     
    Please note that seniors must still apply for a Graduation Cord yearly.
     
    Thespians must have completed a minimum of 7 Thespian points per year (points do not carry over from year to year) in order to become an Honor Thespian and receive a cord at graduation.. Remember, you must fill out a Thespian Cord application yearly in order to receive your graduation cord. Newly inducted seniors will now need 15 points to obtain an Honor graduation cord (10 to be inducted).
