Mingus Union High School parents and seniors alike are looking forward to graduation night Friday, May 25.

The popular event for Mingus Union High School graduates will take place in the Cottonwood Recreation Center from 10 p.m. until 4 a.m., with doors closing at 11 p.m. and no right of re-entry for students who choose to leave the building. For seniors, it will mark a chance to celebrate their accomplishments and their entry into adulthood.

For parents — especially the volunteer parents putting on the annual all-night event Operation Graduation — it will mark the end of a month of planning and fundraising to make sure their kids can celebrate in an all-night drug- and alcohol-free party.

“It’s a safe, fun place to go after graduation, and I’m really thankful to the parents for organizing the event,” MUHS Principal Tamara Addis said.
