Moline Seniors Pick Up Caps and Gowns

cap and gown pickup at Moline High School

Despite the pandemic and the closing of schools, Moline is still holding out hope for a commencement ceremony. Tuesday graduating seniors drove up to the high school, stayed in their cars, and were handed their caps and gowns by school staff. 

They also received a flyer listing the current possibilities for commencement - they include July 23rd at either the TaxSlayer Center or Browning Field, or the weekend of July 24th at the high school in the Bartlett Performing Arts Center.

The convocation award ceremony, however, will be virtual, in mid-May. Seniors voted to hold a prom, and the tentative date now is the weekend of July 17th and 18th. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
