A Letter From the Executive Director of Operations, Mrs. Kristina Lucas:

March 2, 2023

Parent/Guardians of Tri-Rivers senior students:

We are thankful for our parental support at Tri-Rivers Career Center, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your son/daughter’s educational journey. Even through some of the most trying school years, your student has succeeded. With that being said, Tri-Rivers Career Center will be recognizing our successful seniors at a Ceremony Thursday, May 18th, 2023 at 7:00 p.m.
at the Marion Coliseum
located on the Marion County Fairgrounds: 220 E. Fairground St. Marion, Ohio 43302. All senior completers will be recognized for their accomplishments that evening.

This event is a celebration of their achievements and successes while attending Tri-Rivers. Many of our students have set goals that will move them way beyond the walls of TRCC and for that we are honored and privileged to celebrate them.

We will hold a Senior Meeting with our current Senior students during their lunches at TRCC on Wednesday, April 5th. We will review the important dates and answer questions regarding the ceremony and end of the year events. All of our Senior information will be posted on the Tri-Rivers website www.tririvers.com and will be announced on our Morning News.

FAQ’s-Frequently Asked Questions:

What should students wear?  Students should dress formally. Males should wear a shirt with a collar, dress shirt and/or tie, and dress pants. Females are encouraged to wear dresses or skirts of appropriate length, or dress pants. We ask that ALL students refrain from wearing t-shirts, sweatshirts, sweatpants and tennis shoes. For safety reasons NO flip flops or high heels.
All students will be asked to wear their Home-School purchased Josten’s gowns during the ceremony. No caps or tassels at the TRCC ceremony-students may wear their NTHS/NHS cords. If students are homeschooled or they do not intend to participate at their home school graduation but are interested in walking at Tri-Rivers Senior Recognition – please send them to Mrs. Rhonda Irey in the SRC by Friday, April 28th to place a hold on a robe for the event.

What time does the event start?  The event starts promptly at 7:00 pm. We are asking that all students arrive by 6:00 pm to prepare for the line-up and seating arrangements. We ask that all parents attending remain at the event until the last student crosses the stage. This minimizes the distraction from our students that deserve to be recognized properly.

How long does the event last? The event itself typically lasts about 90 minutes. Please be prepared to stay inside the Coliseum until all students are released. We have many students that have worked hard to be recognized and we would like to make sure we honor them.

Are pictures available? Yes. We plan to have photographers take candids throughout the event and take individual photos of each senior as they exit the stage. We will post these on our social media for parents.

How many guests may attend? At this time we are allowing each senior to bring as many family/friend members as they would like. Tickets are not necessary for entry into this event.

What if I have a family member with Handicap Accessible needs?  We will have handicap accessible parking and seating available. The seating is limited so we ask that only one other person from your family sit with them so that we have room for others with needs and our seniors.

May I take pictures? Yes, we just ask that you wait until after the ceremony to take pictures with your student.

Again, this is a celebration to recognize our seniors and we want to honor their accomplishments at TRCC. Each student that walks across the stage deserves to have their name and accomplishments heard by all. As a reminder, please keep all cell phones and devices on mute until the ceremony is completed.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me via email
