For the past 33 years, graduation night has been a special occasion for the seniors of Robeson County Schools.
Project Graduation is dedicated to making a safe, drug free and fun filled evening that will long be remembered by all who attend. The event takes place on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Pembroke with free food, music, games and a host of other entertainment. Students from all seven high schools are given tee-shirts, prizes, and have a chance to win a United Way scholarship. United Way awarded six $700 scholarships to graduating seniors that are college-bound in the fall.
2020 Project Graduation scholarship recipients:
Red Springs High School: D'anta Carter
Early College High School: Kyle Edwards
St. Pauls High School: Destiny Maynor
Lumberton High School: Kylan Rivera
Purnell Swett High School: Arison Alford
Fairmont High School: Kaitlyn Hunt
Congratulations to the winners!
The event is sponsored by many individuals and companies who contribute the money needed to make the event a success and at no cost to the students. On the night of Project Graduation, volunteers from throughout the county come together to provide the labor needed for the production of food, games, decoration, entertainment and a double dose of fun, in a safe and drug free environment.
