It may seem like an early graduation for Lincoln High School, and that’s because it is.
The high school typically holds its commencement sometime in early June, but since this year’s winter was so mild, snow days were at a minimum and school could end at its normal time.
Lincoln High School is holding its graduation ceremony tonight at 7 p.m. in the school’s auditorium. A total of 116 seniors will receive diplomas during the 2012 commencement.
