RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Scotty McCreery is graduating from Garner High School, but fans won’t be able to see him walk across the stage unless they have a ticket.
The News & Observer of Raleigh reported (http://bit.ly/Kx2Acg) that last year’s American Idol” winner graduates Thursday in a ceremony at the Raleigh Convention Center. Wake County schools spokeswoman Samiha Khanna says no extra security will be on hand for the 8 a.m. ceremony. Each Garner High School student received eight tickets for family members and friends.
Khanna says there will be no extra security on hand for the 8 a.m. ceremony. There will be two school-system security officers, a couple of Raleigh police officers and about 15 private security guards.
McCreery plans to attend N.C. State University in the fall.
