Graduation May 17 2020
2020 Graduation Movie
On May 17, 2020, Macomb High School (IL) hosted a "movie drive-in" style graduation ceremony for the the Class of 2020. Graduation took place at MHS in the west parking lot. All guidelines from ISBE and the IDPH were followed to provide a safe alternative to our traditional ceremony at Western Hall.
