No reserved seating at graduations

To the editor:

Something is needs to be done about graduations for Shelbyville Central High School.

I personally thought going to the arena was a good idea because of the seating arrangement, but boy, was I wrong.

There was a mother and father there who were trying to reserve two rows of seats.

Neither they nor the security at the graduation seemed to understand that there are no reserved seats at the graduations.

People need to be more courteous to others and realize that other people have children who are graduating as well.

I can understand if someone was sitting in the seat and got up and was going to return, but reserving seats that are unoccupied?

I hate to say it, but this was my last child and my last graduation.

Phyllis Green,
