Shelbyville High School will be holding Project Graduation this year on May 25, 2018.  Project Graduation is a drug and alcohol free event that lasts all night.  It provides a safe alternative for graduates who might otherwise be partying.  It keeps graduates off the roads, prevents them from becoming an accident statistic, and gives their parents ease knowing their son/daughter is safely Celebrating.

Project Graduation originated in Maine in response to the deaths of twelve teenagers in related highway crashes.  The idea of Project Graduation has spread across the nation during graduation and prom night, since these are the two deadliest nights for teenagers.  Project Graduation has saved lives in many communities and schools across the state of Texas.  The success of Project Graduation is in direct relation to the commitment of parents, school administration and staff, and community members and businesses.  These volunteers donate their time and money to provide an exciting and memorable evening of fun and fellowship for the graduates with their classmates for the very last time.  To make this event successful, we need donations from businesses and individuals like you in our area.

Any contributions you wish to make toward prizes or food will be greatly appreciated.  If you choose to make a monetary donation, please mail directly to the address below:
