MOBILE COUNTY, Alabama --
High school graduation day is a time for family and friends to celebrate the accomplishments of their young scholars. But for many graduates in Mobile County, a new limit on the number of guests they can invite has put a damper on their celebrations.

"It's the moment we've been waiting for our entire lives," said Samuel Brown, Class President of Alma Bryant High School's Senior Class. "I'm sure every student feels the same as me. You want as many people there to see you graduate as possible."

Aaron Poiroux is also a Senior at Alma Bryant High School, and says ten invitations isn't nearly enough.

"You have to understand a lot of these students here, when they walk across that stage, that's going to be one of the biggest achievements of their lives. And to tell them that they can only bring ten people to their graduation, it's not right."

Superintendent Martha Peek says it's an attempt to keep those rowdy crowds to a minimum.

"We've had many people at graduations who have been disappointed because they could not fully enjoy seeing someone important in their family graduate," said Peek.

The school system says those not invited should watch the ceremony streaming Live over the Internet.

This is the first time they've issued tickets for graduation since they started holding them at the Mitchell Center on USA's campus.

A petition started by the students online already has hundreds of signatures. See the petition here: www.ipetitions.com/petition/re…
