Grad Night marks the beginning of the 100 deadliest days of summer for teens. As part of the Mesquite Police Department’s commitment to the safety of our youth, MPD has now hosted Grad Night for twelve consecutive years. The purpose of Grad Night is to provide a safe place for students to celebrate their graduation from high school.

The graduating students arrived at the Mesquite Recreation Center shortly after their high school graduation ceremony. The Grad Night event then began with the graduates enjoying great food, drinks, and desserts, which were donated by local businesses. The graduates also enjoyed various activities which included; Soccer, basketball, swimming, pedal car races, movies, airbrush tattoos, green screen photography, inflatable human hamster balls, a s’mores station, and had their portraits drawn by a talented local artist.

In addition to the normal hamburgers and hotdogs provided by Mesa View Hospital, graduates chowed down on some carne asada tacos. "They were a hit this year," said Officer Tracy Fails, the organizer of the event. Photo courtesy of MPD.

As always, Grad Night ended at 4:00 a.m. with the highly anticipated raffle prize drawing. Local businesses and private citizens generously donated enough to allow all graduates to win a prize. Prizes included; tablets, laptops, televisions, cameras, Go Pro cameras, Headphones, gift cards, and many other items. Each senior also received a tee shirt with a custom design made specifically for this event.

The Mesquite Police Department appreciates the support of local businesses and private individuals who generously donated to ensure the event was a success, as well as assistance from the recreation center and the fire department. MPD would like to sincerely thank the many generous businesses and individuals who gave funding and gifts to make this event possible. Major contributors to this years event were; Construction Carpentry Finishes, Mesquite Gaming, David Ballweg, B&B Towing, Automotive Certified Technicians Auto Repair, Wal Mart, Smith’s Food and Drug, and Mesa View Regional Hospital.

Police Chief Troy Tanner took a night out as well, spending it with the graduates participating in the annual Grad Night Out. It didn't take long for him to dive in to some chips and salsa, either. Photo courtesy of MPD.
