Senior Celebration #MCDANIEL21

Congratulations, Class of 2021! You made it. Now, it's time to CELEBRATE! Celebrate all you have accomplished and have some fun  (virtually and in-person) during Senior Week, May 17-21, 2021.


The commencement committee has been busy planning many of the traditional senior events, like the ringing of the bell, Senior Week and our honors and awards ceremonies. They have worked to preserve tradition as much as possible while being conscious of the fact that some members of the graduating classes simply cannot participate in in-person events. Our hope is to be as inclusive as possible and we hope you enjoy it!
