MIAMI, Fla. (AP) - Some quick changes had to be made when Vice President Joe Biden agreed to be the keynote speaker at Cypress Bay High School's graduation.
School officials say the ceremony was set for June 3 at the University of Miami's Bank United Center, but Biden couldn't make it that day. They rescheduled for June 4, but the facility was not available at that time.
So Broward County's largest high school booked Marlins Park for the 2012 graduation. The South Florida SunSentinel (http://sunsent.nl/JWkmls ) reports it will be the first graduation ceremony held at the new home of the Miami Marlins.
Changing venues came with a cost, but a private donor made up the $6,000 difference.
Officials say about 7,500 people are expected to attend graduation. Cypress Bay has 4,210 students.
