School board to loosen grad ceremony rules


In response to requests from some graduating Laramie High School seniors, the Albany County School District No. 1’s school board is considering a new policy that would allow seniors to wear to their graduation ceremony “objects of cultural significance” and graduation cords recognizing a “significant achievement” in clubs that aren’t physically represented at the high school.

The proposed policy came after senior Hudda Herrera requested to wear eagle feathers and beadwork at the ceremony. Another senior, Isabel Polidora, had also asked to wear a graduation cord marking her achievement in Girl Scouts.
