2016 Commencement Ceremony
The Class of 2016 Commencement Ceremony will be held Friday, May 20 @ 7 p.m. in the Vinton County High School gymnasium. Graduates will need to arrive and check in Mrs. Harris' room @ 5 p.m., with the front doors opening for guests @ 6 p.m. NEW THIS YEAR - Due to lack of space, each graduate will need to sign up by May 6, for a maximum of 10 tickets each. Anyone sitting in a seat, regardless of age, will need a ticket. They will receive tickets at practice on Thursday, May 19. Only those with tickets in hand will be seated in the gymnasium. All guests without tickets, and those arriving after 6:50 p.m., will be directed to watch the Live Feed in the cafeteria. Since graduation is a prestigious and lengthy ceremony, it is recommended that younger children not attend, in order to minimize the noise and distractions from our graduates. If you decide to bring young children, they must be on a lap without carriers and/or strollers to take up space, or they will also need a ticket.

The 2016 Diversity Fair was a HUGE SUCCESS!
Congratulations and thank you to everyone who helped with this year's Diversity Fair and helped make it successful. Student and community presentations took Vinton County students around the globe and introduced them to diverse languages, culture, history, and customs. Well done Senora Smith and Dr.Xenos!

Senior Yearbook Pictures

ATTENTION CLASS OF 2016: Graduation is quickly approaching! Have you submitted your senior picture to the yearbook?


1.  All students wanting their picture in the senior section of the yearbook must have had a picture taken by Lifetouch even if you plan to use your own senior picture. This serves as your place holder in the yearbook. (This was announced prior to Lifetouch pictures in the fall on September 18th.)


2. You may submit your own senior picture to be used in the yearbook:

Pictures must meet the following requirements:

  • picture must be of professional quality, you can have your photographer email us your headshot or submit it yourself.
  • picture must be submitted on or before Friday, March 4, 2016.
  • picture image can be no larger than 8MB
  • picture must be submitted to Mrs. Walton and saved to a disc or jump drive in .jpeg format or via email to
  • only headshots will be accepted (try to aim for shoulder area and up)


3.  Please keep this in mind. We value you as a yearbook customer and we do our best to ensure efficiency and strive for perfection in regards to our yearly publication. Yearbook cannot guarantee that your personal submitted picture will appear in the yearbook. That is why we provide you with these guidelines to help ensure success. Please note it is policy that refunds will not be given. Senior pictures have been left out of the yearbook in past years for various reasons. Technology doesn’t always cooperate, sometimes picture resolution does not meet requirements, and images have been lost from our publication website prior to publication. (Yes, these are worst case scenarios! We normally have a nice hardcover yearbook after a lot of work, and fun, from a wonderful staff of students!)


4. Yearbook reserves the right to determine the appropriateness of your picture.  If it is unsuitable, we will use your Lifetouch photo. All picture must be school appropriate.


5. Your picture might appear slightly different in the book due to publisher printing.


Pictures that do not meet all of the above requirements will not be used.  Yearbook will not crop images or change picture resolution.  When we have to crop images, it often distorts the image, which means that our website will not accept it.  If we are unable to use your senior picture, we will use your Lifetouch photo instead. Remember: just because you submit your own photo it does not guarantee that it will be the photo that appears in the yearbook senior section! We try our best to make sure every senior is happy. If we have problems with your headshot we will contact you and try to see if you have an alternative picture you would like to use. We want your senior yearbook to be a place you can reference some of your happiest moments from your last year in high school!
