More than 1,800 graduates of Springfield Public Schools were celebrated on May 18.

At Great Southern Bank Arena on Missouri State University's campus, five graduation ceremonies were held to honor the graduates and members of the Class of 2024.

"After today, you will enter the world as an accomplished member of society," shared Dr. Grenita Lathan in her graduation address. "You put in the work to reach this moment, and just like your school career at SPS, I can guarantee that you’ll need a team in life to succeed."

Earlier this week, more than 50 members of the Class of 2024 were also celebrated at Study High School and dozens more SPS students graduated from the Middle College at Ozarks Technical Community College.
