Congratulations to the Class of 2020!

A total of 431 candidates for associate degrees and certificates were recognized at a special virtual ceremony on Friday, May 15, 2020. Seventy eight of these students completed their programs entirely online through the Internet Academy.

President Cathleen McColgin addressed the graduates and said, “The current situation, while difficult in so many ways, will help shape your future. It will make you stronger, more resilient, resourceful, creative and adaptable. All of you have persevered through an extremely challenging time. You and your families have much to be proud of and the future is yours to create.”

Originally, we had planned to celebrate with the Class of 2020 this fall during Fall Fest & Alumni Weekend. However, due to the ongoing pandemic, the Fall Fest & Alumni Weekend has been canceled, and we will be unable to host the Class of 2020 for a special celebration on campus. If and when we are able to make plans, we will post them here and share them with the graduates via email, text and social media.
