Wayne County Public Schools will graduate approximately 1,184 seniors over the course of the coming weeks, officials say.

In addition to the six traditional schools in the district, which will produce 1,048 candidates, the two non-traditional schools will hold ceremonies later this week, with 136 graduates.

Wayne Early/Middle College High School ceremonies will be Thursday at 6 p.m. on the graduation field of Wayne Community College, with 60 candidates.

On Friday at 6 p.m., 76 students from Wayne School of Engineering will cross the stage of the Goldsboro High School auditorium.

Neither of those schools opt to have a valedictorian or salutatorian.

But it is worth noting that 34 of the 60 graduates from Wayne Early/Middle have already earned associate degrees from Wayne Community College, and three have completed requirements for both Associate in Arts and Associate in Science degrees.

Admission to all graduation ceremonies is by ticket only, which are issued to each student.

Ceremonies for Rosewood High School will be held Friday, June 8, on the Branch Pope football field at 7 p.m. The school has 115 candidates for diplomas.

Eastern Wayne High has 240 seniors graduating Saturday, June 9, at 9 a.m. in Warrior football stadium.

At 10 a.m., Charles B. Aycock High will graduate 242 students on Hardy Talton athletic field.

Spring Creek High ceremonies will also be held at 10 a.m., in Kornegay Arena at Mount Olive College, with 121 graduates.

Southern Wayne High ceremonies will be held June 12 at 7 p.m., also in Kornegay Arena at MOC, with 230 diplomas handed out.

Goldsboro High School ceremonies are planned for Friday, June 15, at 6 p.m. in Cougar Stadium, with 100 candidates for diplomas.
