  • MHS Graduation Ceremony Etiquette

    The Lamar University Montagne Center forbids the use of cowbells, horns, and other noise makers. There will have security on hand and ready to remove those persons who will not abide by the rules. Please be mindful that everyone present will have relatives, friends, and neighbors graduating and they want to see them and hear their names called. So as the program proceeds, please be very quiet when names are being called so everyone can hear the names they came to hear.
