The moment for seniors is here – or nearly.
The 2021 graduations for Slaton, Roosevelt, Southland and Wilson will be conducted this week and next.
Southland and Wilson will have theirs this week, while Slaton and Roosevelt will have theirs next week.

Roosevelt ISD’s graduation will be conducted the following day (May 28) at 7 p.m. in the Roosevelt Arena.
This week’s edition of The Slatonite includes the annual graduation section.
Due to some schools electing to announce top honors at a later date, the edition will look a little different than previous years.
The valedictorian and salutatorian will still be recognized on the front page of the week’s edition of their commencements along with photos.
This year, the grad section will start off with Slaton graduates on page one, then progress to Roosevelt, Southland and Wilson. Photos of graduates are in black and white.
