If you are a veteran of World War II or the Korean War who left Portsmouth High School to enlist or were drafted into the service, and did not complete your high school education, you may now be eligible to receive your high school diploma under a new program established through the Portsmouth School Department. Qualified candidates may receive their graduation certification during the next ceremony held in June.
One requirement of this program is that all veteran candidates meet briefly with a Veterans Diploma Committee to share their experiences of leaving high school and joining the military.
If you know of an individual who qualifies for this program or if you would like more information, please contact Superintendent of Schools Stephen Zadravec at (603) 431-5080. We ask that all requests for participation be made prior to June 1st of each year.
