Weinberg Center Recognizes FCPS 2020 Graduating Seniors on Theater Marquee

FREDERICK, Md. - June 4, 2020 - PRLog -- Beginning Monday, June 8 The Weinberg Center for the Arts will provide a photo-op for graduating seniors with recognition of each Frederick County Public School on the marquee over a two-week period.

The current COVID-19 pandemic forced the closing of the historic 94-year-old former silent movie house and current performing arts center on March 13. Still unable to open at this time, the theater has used its marquee to keep the citizens of Frederick entertained with funny and inspirational movie quotes during the stay at home order over the past 2 ½ months.

As the community rallies around its high school graduates, denied a traditional graduation ceremony this year, the Weinberg staff thought giving each Frederick County high school it's day on the marquee would be another way to celebrate the graduates.  The marquee will be updated each day at 10:00 AM and the school's name will stay on until 9:00 AM the next morning. The schedule for postings is:

Monday, June 8 – Frederick High School
Tuesday, June 9 – Brunswick High School
Wednesday, June 10 – Catoctin High School
Thursday, June 11 – Tuscarora High School
Friday, June 12 – Oakdale High School

Sat. & Sun. June 13&14 – Rock Creek School & SUCCESS Program

Monday, June 15 – Linganore High School
Tuesday, June 16 – Middletown High School
Wednesday, June 17 – Walkersville High School
Thursday, June 18 – Urbana High School
Friday, June 19 – Gov. Thomas Johnson High School

Graduating seniors are encouraged to put on their cap and gown, take their picture in front of the marquee and share it on social media using #weinberg2020grad.
