The president of the Anne Arundel County Board of Education said he'd like to find a place in the county to hold high school graduations.
Andrew Pruski requested the formation of a committee to determine how to hold more graduation ceremonies in Anne Arundel County each May. Currently, many graduation ceremonies are held outside of Anne Arundel County, at sites including the campus of UMBC and Showplace Arena in Upper Marlboro.
“Anytime we can keep tax dollars, and keep people traveling in Anne Arundel, we should do that,” Pruski said. “It’s not a decision or a move, but a look to the future."
Pruski said that Sen. Ed Degrange (D-Glen Burnie) has indicated support for a county graduation site.
Board member Salon Webb asked that the ad hoc budget committee examine the issue.
