ABRHS Project Graduation 2019
The original Project Graduation was held in Oxford Hills, Maine in 1980, a year after their deadliest commencement season, when 12 teenagers (five in one crash alone) lost their lives to drug and alcohol-related incidents.
In 1989, the parents in Acton and Boxborough Massachusetts held their first Project Graduation celebration at ABRHS to:
- Provide a memorable, fun and safe celebration for graduating seniors
- Help prevent our community's young adults from becoming accident statistics
- Allow parents to rest easy because their children are safely celebrating with peers
- Help keep our teens safe
We need $30,000 and lots of volunteers to throw an all-night party with prizes, food and activities for over 450 graduating seniors. Over the years this has been made possible by generous parent donations, business donations, a small ticket fee, and hundreds of volunteer hours.
