Commencement exercises in Booneville and Magazine will be held on Thursday and Friday of this week.

Bearcat Stadium will host a ceremony in Booneville for 109 students at 8 p.m. on Thursday. Diamondback Arena will host a ceremony for 34 students in Magazine at 7 p.m. on Friday.

Inside today’s print edition of the paper are pictures of the honor graduates of the respective schools. Traditionally the Democrat has printed multiple pages featuring the entire class the issue prior to graduation.

This year, however, we will be producing those in a tab, or folded, insert to the paper the week after graduation, or May 23. We are doing so in order to have not only the pictures of the graduates, but also scenes from graduation night as well.
