Sample Emcee Script for Moving Up or Graduation Ceremony
A emcee script in the graduation ceremony is quite helpful because all schools will be conducting or celebrating graduation rites or moving up ceremonies every year. For those teachers who are assigned to be EMCEEs or Masters of Ceremonies but don’t yet have a guide, this emcee script will be useful for them.
An emcee script is sometimes difficult because there is a protocol to follow. Teachers who are always assigned to be the emcee at every event should be trained to guide them. Not only English majors but teachers from all subject areas must attend because not all English majors will be assigned to be hosts, but I believe all teachers who have the potential or ability to speak or communicate should also attend.

This emcee script at a graduation is helpful for the newly hired teachers in schools who are appointed as hosts or emcees. Teachers will be guided in what they say, even if each school celebrates the event in its own unique way.
The usefulness of the emcee script at the graduation is as a guide or a door to open up the teachers’ ideas about what to do at the graduation. It helps them embark and add more colors to make the event more memorable for the graduates. The best graduation ceremonies are in the hands of the emcee and how she/he runs the program.
Tips on how to effectively deliver an emcee script for a graduation ceremony:
