Thank you for your interest Project Graduation 2021!

Project Graduation is a drug and alcohol free celebration on the night of graduation that keeps the graduates off the road and safe during a time when statistically underage drinking is at an all time high nationwide. The celebration begins when the graduates leave the RHAM High School campus at 9:00PM on the night of graduation, and end when they return to RHAM High School at 4:00AM the next day.

Project Graduation is coordinated by AHM Youth and Family Services,  junior and senior parents utilizing the help from RHAM High School student volunteers through out the academic year. For over 25 years this tradition has successfully recognized this special milestone for 1000s of RHAM High School graduates!

We had a great turnout and a beautiful Fall day to run or walk this course!
