Delta Junction High School

Despite the coronavirus shutdown, Delta Junction High School seniors and their friends and families will get to celebrate their graduation this year after all. That’s because the students and district administrators have worked out plans for an unusual commencement ceremony Thursday night that’ll allow the community to honor the seniors – while protecting their health.

REVISED: Delta Junction High School senior Hailey Williams has attracted national attention over the past couple of years for her record-setting sprints in short-distance events. In November, she accepted an offer to run track and study health sciences at Duke University,  becoming one of only a handful of Delta athletes to be offered a chance to compete for an NCAA Division I school.
