Block High School (BHS) Principal, Joseph Bondurant announced to the Catahoula News Booster that the graduation exercises for Block will be in the BHS Gym ad not the Football Stadium where it usually takes place.
There has also been a change in the time of the ceremony.  It has been changed to begin at 6:30 p.m. to allow everyone to get to graduation on time if they must work until 5:00 p.m. 
Because of recent large amounts of rain, the ground at the football stadium is very wet which makes it difficult to prepare for graduation.  BHS will create large impassable areas at each point of entry, in front of stands, and around the restrooms to accommodate the crowd.  Staff at BHS felt it best served the community if graduation was held inside the gym
The Gym is also more accessible for handicap persons. Guests should also be able to hear speakers better. Graduates can invite as many guests as they want and still be plenty of room.
Mr. Boudurant released the following message to graduates. “I am not sure how many graduations Block has observed over the years, but I am confident it is well over the 100 mark. I wish to thank you all for allowing me to come here these three months and complete the school year. It has been a pleasure. This year’s class has plenty of quality and I expect we will enjoy seeing many of these graduates be successful in their future endeavors.”
