Tuesday, May 26 through Saturday, June 6, the nonprofit Tower Theatre Foundation will celebrate Central Oregon’s 2020 High School graduates. Each of the 12 area high schools will get a custom message on the marquee for 24 hours. “Graduating high school is a huge accomplishment,” says Tower Theatre Foundation Director of Education, Dani Wyeth. “We value that hard work and want to salute all Central Oregon seniors as only the Tower can.” Students and families from these schools can come throughout the day and night to take pictures under the marquee, drive by and honk, wave and participate in a collective celebration for all that these young adults have accomplished. The marquee will be changed every morning at 9am, and the schedule for the marquee messages is the following:
May 26: Mountain View High School
May 27: Summit High School
May 28: Bend High School
May 29: Redmond High School
