As long as there are no changes due to COVID-19, Yukon High School will have a graduation ceremony May 21, 2021.

The May, 2020 ceremony was moved to July 18 last year after delays due to COVID-19.

Yukon Superintendent Dr. Jason Simeroth told school board members in a meeting Monday night a date was set barring any changes during the pandemic.

An outdoor ceremony will be at Miller Stadium.


Simeroth said people appreciated the July 18 ceremony outdoors after the 2020 ceremony was delayed.

The ceremony “will ensure graduates receive the recognition they deserve after prevailing over an unmatched high school career,” according to a news release from the district.

“Although traditionally held in Oklahoma City, the district anticipates moving the ceremony to Yukon will enrich the experience for graduates and equip our community to follow public health and safety guidelines throughout the event,” according to the statement.

The 2021 graduation will be 7 p.m. Friday, May 21 at Miller Stadium, 1777 S Yukon Parkway.
