Thanks to the City of Xenia, the ceremony will also be streamed via our local public access television channel!
Spectrum customers can tune in to Channel 5, while ATT U-Verse customers should go to Channel 99, and select "Xenia Government Channel" from the listing of Miami Valley cities available. 

A couple of tips to remember...
- If you go to the watch page ahead of time, click "Set Reminder" to get a notification 30 minutes prior to the broadcast.
- If you subscribe to the new Xenia High School channel, you can click the bell to receive notifications any time there is any new content posted. 
- If you are watching online, a countdown will begin two (2) minutes prior to the premiere, so you can be sure that you are in the right place at the right time! You will be able to scrub backward during the stream – but not ahead. After it has aired, you will be able to watch the video at any time on the channel.

Special assistance to the committee was provided by PR Frank and Kari Petraiuolo. Mr. Frank dedicated hours of time and expertise to record speeches and produce the actual program, while Mrs. Petraiuolo stepped in to coordinate the "Senior Sendoff" picture montage and messages from staff.

Thanks to Nathan Kopp, who worked with the committee to grow his idea for a yard sign project to recognize all seniors and let each one know that we are proud of their accomplishments.

In addition, the committee would like to thank Wes Smith of Better Images for his generosity and support in making our virtual program a reality. Mike Beerman of Jostens was also extremely supportive in securing the ability for our students to keep and use graduation robes over the two weeks.
