The Alabama School of Math & Science hosts high school graduation at The Hangout 

Posted

The Alabama School of Math and Science (ASMS) hosted their senior graduation ceremony at The Hangout Friday, May 22. ASMS represents students from all over the state of Alabama and from 57 counties. The Hangout is opening their doors to ASMS, offering the use of their facilities and the opportunity to host their graduation in the courtyard on the main stage. 

According to David Zislin, of Hangout Hospitality Group, who is the father of two ASMS students, one current junior and one 2018 graduate, “The Hangout is excited to partner with ASMS and to provide these students with a well-deserved opportunity to walk across the stage and receive their diplomas. In light of recent events, there are many students who were not able to attend their own graduations, and it is an honor to host such a special occasion.” 

“Graduation is important to our amazing seniors, and The Hangout is the perfect place for them to walk across the stage safely and in style,” says ASMS President Dr. John Hoyle. “We appreciate The Hangout and look forward to a joyful celebration.”

Morgan Roland, an ASMS senior from Mobile County, says “Graduation at Hangout will truly be a memorable experience for the class of 2020. It’s definitely a different graduation setting, and not the one any of us expected, but that won’t make it any less special... Graduating at Hangout will be a memorable day for us all, an experience none of us are sure to forget!”

The Alabama School of Mathematics and Science is the state's only fully public and residential high school for sophomores, juniors, and seniors pursuing advanced studies in math, science and the humanities. ASMS is a research-focused learning community committed to innovation, interdisciplinary collaboration, and diversity with a mission to empower motivated Alabama students to improve their community, state and nation. Tuition, room and board are free.

The Hangout is the place for great food and family fun. Come enjoy live entertainment, relax around the fire pit, let the kids play and share good times! Where Highway 59 meets the sandy, white beaches of Gulf Shores, the 2.5-acre restaurant features full-service dining, beach access, and a courtyard with a ton-of-fun sand pile, foam pit, games, retail shopping, stages for live music and more.
