In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the challenges that many have faced, CentraCom pledged to the Keep Americans Connected Initiative that ensures people do not lose their broadband or telephone connectivity as a result of these exceptional circumstances. And as the students were released from schools to continue their education with online learning, CentraCom connected over 400 homes at no charge for the remainder of the school year.

“We have received a tremendous response from school administrators, teachers and parents,” said Nate Palmer, Vice President Marketing of CentraCom.

Local High School Graduation Ceremonies

CentraCom streaming 2020 gradudation ceremonies

All of the local high schools are working to provide graduation ceremonies that will adhere to health requirements and give the graduates the recognition they deserve. Virtual and “drive-up” graduation ceremonies are planned. The CentraCom Local 10 streaming service will be streaming the graduation ceremonies for all of the public high schools in Sanpete, Sevier, Millard and Juab counties.

Barrett Hilton, Director of Production and Content Development, is working with the nine local schools to produce video recordings of the graduation ceremony speeches. Since these events are restricted to a select group of individuals, CentraCom is assisting the schools by recording and broadcasting the events live. Barrett and his team will be broadcasting the speeches and live-streaming the drive-through diploma presentations on CentraCom Local 10 cable TV channel and streaming live on www.local10.tv free for anyone to view. These events begin on Wednesday, May 20 and continue through Friday, May 22, 2020.
