Recently, the Neosho School District has hosted graduation at the Leggett & Platt Athletic Center at Missouri Southern State University with growing class sizes prompting the move.

Now, with a new turf field at Bob Anderson Stadium, graduation is coming back to Neosho this year on May 13.

Neosho Schools Superintendent Dr. Jim Cummins confirmed he had spoken with the Newton County Health Department about the graduation with the guidance being to maintain distance from other families if possible.

Last year, due to the pandemic, a drive through graduation ceremony took place in front of the high school in June. Each graduate had two cars filled with themselves, friends and family with each graduate able to get out of the car, walk across the stage and receive their diploma.
