Shortridge Magnet High School for Law & Public Policy will host a naturalization ceremony at 10 a.m. Thursday. Chief Judge James K. Coachys of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Indiana, will preside over the ceremony.
Naturalization ceremonies are typically held weekly in Indianapolis in the Birch Bayh Federal Building and United States Courthouse. The ceremony at the high school is a result of a collaboration between the school, the Southern District of Indiana, and the Indianapolis Bar Association Public Outreach Committee.
Shortridge students will participate in the ceremony, including presenting table-top American flags to the new citizens.
