HOPE – The end of the academic year 2021-2022 will begin with Hope High School commencement exercises Friday, May 13.

The HHS Class of 2022 will formally graduate in ceremonies at Hammons Stadium on the HHS campus at 6 p.m. Some 153 seniors are candidates for graduation this year, according to HHS Principal Donald Patton.

A valedictory and salutatory address will be given as well as a charge to the Class of 2022, Patton said.

Should inclement weather prevent use of Hammons Stadium, the ceremony will be moved to Hempstead Hall and begin at 6 p.m., Patton said.

The evening will also include the announcement of college scholarship awards to HHS seniors from colleges and universities across Arkansas, as well as memorial scholarships honoring the memory of HHS students April Love and Heidi Hoglund.
