  • Attention Seniors: Diploma Presenters for Graduation, form Due Friday! Every year, each graduate is given the opportunity to choose a diploma presenter who has been influential in his/her life.  The special person that each senior selects must be a current or former Worthington City Schools employee.  The person you select will be invited to present your diploma to you at Commencement in May 2021. In order to request the person you would like as your diploma presenter, you must turn in your request using this Diploma Presenter Request Google Form no later than Friday, March 26, 2021.  The form can be found on your class Schoology page and other senior graduation communications. There is NO need to ask the person you are requesting ahead of time.  The diploma presenter coordinator, Mrs. Wilson, will do that for you.  Due to the time and effort involved in inviting these individuals and in organizing this addition to the Commencement ceremony, your cooperation in meeting this deadline is imperative.  If you do not request a guest presenter, a member of the Worthington Board of Education will present your diploma.  Please see Mrs. Wilson, Room 198, or email her at [email protected], with any questions concerning this process.
