Full broadcasts of Folsom, Vista del Lago and Rancho Cordova High School ceremonies free to view
For those that can’t make it to one of the upcoming Folsom Cordova Unified High School graduation ceremonies due to distance or seating limitations, Folsom Times has you covered.
Watch the live stream here:
In collaboration with the Folsom Cordova Unified School District (FCUSD), Folsom TV and the staff of each participating school, the locally owned and operated online news resource will be providing viewers the opportunity to view ceremonies from Folsom High School, Vista del Lago High School and Cordova High. All the of ceremonies will be available live, as they happen as well as being archived for later viewing and sharing.
Since 2018, Adam Frick, co-founder of Folsom TV and now the co-founder of FolsomTimes.com, has been live streaming the area graduations though the Folsom TV platform. This will mark the first time in history that a local news resource provides such live coverage of local graduations in their entirety.
For many years, the local schools struggled with the challenge of seating availability for the annual ceremonies. With only seven tickets being issued to each family, the long standing process created a problem for those with larger or extended families often turning to social media groups in desperation to find extra tickets, which are rarely available.
Some people even turned to selling their extra tickets. Frick saw the growing issue and came up with a solution to help the schools and their student families by live streaming the graduations and making the audience at home feel like they are a part of their graduates big day. The FCUSD welcomed the concept.
The livestreaming of local graduation goes beyond the seating challenge, it allows older families that may be home bound with health concerns or disabilities to see their younger generations graduation. It also allows relatives of graduates across the globe to opportunity to watch their loved ones reach a life milestone. The multi-camera set up and team at each ceremony will provide a viewing experience as if they were in attendance from the moments the class of 2023 marches in the stadium.
“Now with the launch and tremendous growth of Folsom Times we get the opportunity to make this livestream available in even a bigger way, through the newest local ‘go to’ online news resource in Folsom.”
The live broadcasts can be viewed on any smart device or computer simply by clicking on the links that will be provided on graduation day on the main page of www.folsomtimes.com.
