Sometimes it takes something negative to open our eyes to change. Due to COVID-19, Katy ISD was forced to make changes to the traditional graduation ceremony at Leonard Merrell Center. The 2020 ceremony was held outside for social distancing purposes at Legacy Stadium and the positive feedback from the event has the district considering this option for the future.
The district feels the stadium would be able to accommodate families and guests for the event without capacity guidelines in the future. The need for tickets would be eliminated and parking would be more accessible. The Leonard Merrell Center or postponement would be considered as options for inclement weather.
The outdoor experience was a memorable event for those in attendance and worth consideration for the future graduates of Katy ISD.
