Calling all 2019 grads!

Are you a soon-to-be-graduate? We want to hear from you.
by: Katie Johns Community Editor

Before you walk across that stage and get your diploma, The Longboat Observer wants to raise a hat, or rather a graduation cap, to you.

Do you know or are you a soon-to-be high school or college graduate who lives on Bird, Lido, St. Armands or Longboat keys?

If so, send an email to Managing Editor Eric Garwood at [email protected] to be included in our special graduation package. Submissions must be made by May 27.
