In tribute to Southlake’s 2020 High School Seniors, Project Graduation is taking over the front part of Southlake Town Square.
“Our high school seniors are amazing,” said Mayor Laura Hill. “They have been through so much because of the COVID-19 crisis; we wanted to find a special way to honor them.”
For several weeks, Mayor Hill and the City have been working with the parents of high school seniors and Carroll ISD to gather the names of Southlake’s 800+ high school graduates. The names are now listed in alphabetical order on the light poles, as shown on the map below.
“I would like to make a special request of our graduates and families, if you take a picture next to your name, please send to the City or me through Facebook messenger or email (email@example.com),” Mayor Hill added. “I can’t wait to see all of the smiling faces.”
The display is scheduled to be in Town Square from now until mid-June.

The CSHS PTSO asks parents to encourage your Senior to join in the festivities. Organizers say they have achieved close to 90% participation for the last several years, and are looking to do so again this year. The PTSO wants every Senior to take advantage of this unique opportunity to share one last evening together as a class. Project Graduation is about savoring this special moment in each student’s life, while providing a fun, safe and substance free Graduation celebration. Let’s give our Seniors an evening to remember!
