The Manhattan High School class of 2014 will graduate at 2 p.m. on Sunday at Bramlage Coliseum, 1800 College Ave.

Principal Greg Hoyt said about 380 students will receive their diplomas during the ceremony.

Commencement is expected to last a little more than two hours, he said. No tickets are required for admission.

The ceremony will include the singing of the national anthem and alma mater by the Pops choir and senior members of the varsity choir.

Student body president Sam Livsey will introduce class speakers Hanna Hayden and Lakith Ranaweera.

Superintendent Bob Shannon will accept the class along with USD 383 Board of Education president Curt Herrman before the presentation of diplomas.

Hoyt said he was proud of the accomplishments of the 2014 class at MHS.

He said students received $500,000 in scholarships this year from Kansas State University alone.
