    The Gradcast project is a collaborative effort to connect area graduating high school seniors with parents and family members deployed around the world, including Afghanistan and Kuwait.

    Since 2004, video conferencing and graduation webcasts have been used to link loved ones deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan with their graduates in Central Texas, home of Fort Hood, the largest military base in the free world.

    The Gradcast project links graduates to their loved ones during one of the most memorable times in their lives. This collaborative project connects seniors graduating from area schools (Belton, Temple, Cove and KISD High Schools) with deployed family members allowing them to view graduation as well a providing an optional 1 to 1 interactive video conference with their loved ones either before or after their graduation ceremony. Media magnification enhances the graduation while real time Video Conferencing during graduation allow graduates to see their loved ones down range as they accept their diploma and allows loved ones to celebrate the graduate’s success of the day.

    We especially thank our community partners and extended family: Azbell Communications, Tandberg, The Bell County Expo Center, Century Link and The United States Army.

    ******GradCast is also a LIVE Video Stream of all area School Graduation Ceremonies. We offer a live online access of Commencement Ceremonies for Belton, Temple, Copperas Cove and all KISD high schools for family and friends who are unable to attend in person.
