  • Graduation tickets to be limited due to fire code

    Beginning this year, the graduation ceremony at Carroll County High School is a ticketed event.

    The change is due to a determination by the state fire marshall’s office that the occupancy level for the CCHS gymnasium, where graduation is held, is 1,800. This is the number of people who can safely exit the building in case of an emergency.

    That means that this year’s senior class of 129 has been allocated 12 tickets per graduate.
