WHERE: Dobyns-Bennett High School Buck Van Huss Dome, One Tribe Way, Kingsport, TN 37664

The Dobyns-Bennett High School Graduation Ceremony for the Class of 2016 will be held on Saturday, May 21 at 9 a.m. in the Buck Van Huss Dome. This is a location change due to the chance of rain predicted for Friday night and Saturday morning.  Due to the smaller capacity of the Dome as compared to the original location, families are encouraged to bring immediate family members of the graduates.  

The ceremony will be streamed live again this year. This service provides a great opportunity for those family and friends that cannot attend in person to watch the graduation as it unfolds. The stream will be recorded for viewing later as well.

To watch the live 2016 Graduation stream visit the Kingsport City Schools homepage at, the Dobyns-Bennett High School homepage at or click one of the two links: (YouTube primary stream) or (High School Cube back up stream if needed). The event stream will start May 21 at 8:45 a.m. EST and run until the end of the ceremony. Viewers can tune in at any time. 

Handicap parking will be available to vehicles with official handicap certificates on both the Tribe Way and Stadium Court entrances to the dome.  Handicap/wheelchair seating areas will be available on the dome floor, reachable by either the ground level entrance near Tribe Way or by the elevator inside the Stadium Court entrance.
