OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Oxford High School will hold it 2014 graduation on a Thursday.
The Oxford Eagle reports it's the first time school officials can recall when graduation ceremonies will not be held on a weekend.
The graduation date has been set for May 22 at C.M. "Tad'' Smith Coliseum due to a conflict in schedules with the University of Mississippi and Lafayette High School.
Lafayette High will have its graduation on Friday, May 23. Ole Miss requested that no Saturday graduations be set since this will be Memorial Day 2014 weekend, and a holiday for university employees.
Oxford schools officials say Ole Miss doesn't charge for use of the coliseum so they wanted to cooperate.
