Parkview Baptist School graduation ceremony canceled

Houston • May 22, 2015

HOUSTON – The graduation ceremony that had been announced by Parkview Baptist School for Wednesday will not take place at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
Houston First, which operates the convention center, terminated a contract with the school to hold the ceremony after the school was unable to meet required terms of the agreement. The event had been scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 27.
“We wanted to make sure everyone knows that the ceremony will not be held at the George R. Brown since, to our knowledge, the school has yet to communicate that fact to the students and parents,” said Luther Villagomez, chief operations officer for conventions at Houston First and general manager of the convention center.
Signs will be placed in the convention center to make sure the public is aware that the event will not be held.
