Millions in scholarships, students overcoming hardships, athletes, musicians, graduation caps flying through the air—now the Cumberland County Schools (CCS) community can see it all! CCS has made all video content from Graduation Season 2022 available to the public through multiple playlists on the district’s YouTube channel.
Family and friends can now watch and share their graduate’s ceremony. Find each school’s commencement on the 2022 Graduation Ceremonies playlist, and listen to the inspiring words of the district’s valedictorians, salutatorians, students leaders and administrators. 
In May, CCS shared the incredible stories of 17 of the brightest and most hardworking students in the district with the 2022 Standout Seniors series. Watch the 2022 Standout Seniors playlist to see students like:
  • Forsby Quick—This three-year graduate found his passion for music and will be touring with the Colts Drum and Bugle Corps this summer.
