The decision not to allow the class of 2009 valedictorians to make speeches at this year’s Anderson County High School graduation was made about two years ago, said Principal Ray Woodyard.
Two years ago the senior class sponsors decided to try to streamline the graduation ceremony and cut out some things to make it shorter, Woodyard said.
As a result, the salutatorian speeches were cut out of last year’s graduation and the plan was to cut the valedictorian speeches this year, he said.
