The Clovis High School (CHS) graduating class of 2021 announce their commencement ceremony, which will be held on Sunday, May 23, 2:00 PM, at Leon Williams Stadium.

Tickets will be required to attend the ceremony. All guests planning to attend, including infants and toddlers, must have a ticket to enter the stadium. In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved to The Rock, and each senior will be permitted two indoor guests who will be granted admission by presenting their ticket with gold lettering.

The stadium gates will open to ticketed spectators at 1:00 PM on Sunday. All traffic will enter the campus on Purdue Street. The alley behind the CHS Lego Gym will be closed to traffic. Once the event has concluded, Purdue and 21st streets will be used to exit the campus.
