The parking lot of the Jerome Schottenstein Center on the Ohio State University campus will be a revolving door Saturday, June 7, as Dublin's three high schools hold back-to-back-to-back graduation ceremonies for the 1,006 members of the class of 2008.

The parking lot of the Jerome Schottenstein Center on the Ohio State University campus will be a revolving door Saturday, June 7, as Dublin's three high schools hold back-to-back-to-back graduation ceremonies for the 1,006 members of the class of 2008.

The events will begin at 1 p.m., when 426 seniors from Coffman High School receive their diplomas.

At 4 p.m., the 305 seniors from Jerome High School will march in to "Pomp and Circumstance."

Finally, at 7 p.m., the 275 seniors from Scioto High School will graduate.

The class of 2008 will be the last in Dublin to honor the top two graduating seniors at each of the three high schools.

The school board approved changes to the 2008-09 high school handbooks last year, modifying the way top students are chosen. The changes came as a way to accommodate the International Baccalaureate (IB) program being added to the high school curricula in the fall.

The designation of valedictorian will be given next year to any student with a grade-point average of 4.1 or higher. The honor currently is bestowed on the student who has the highest GPA in the class. There will be no salutatorians.

The final class honorees are: Hok Hei Tam, valedictorian, and Linda Chen, salutatorian, Coffman; Rebecca Reed, valedictorian, and Shaayak Sen, salutatorian, Jerome; and Erica Wong, valedictorian, and Ruth Lee, salutatorian, Scioto.
