Lake Michigan College Hosting Virtual Graduation Friday

Like seemingly every other college and high school class in America, Lake Michigan College’s Class of 2020 has been forced to innovate around the ceremonies, and they’re planning accordingly for this Friday, with two follow-on options in the months ahead.

Inasmuch as Lake Michigan College graduates must forego a traditional commencement ceremony this year to protect themselves and their families from COVID-19, they’re still finding ways to safely celebrate graduation.

To mark the College’s 73rd annual commencement, LMC has planned three opportunities for 2020 graduates.

A pre-recorded virtual ceremony featuring Chair of LMC’s Board of Trustees, Debra Johnson; LMC President, Trevor Kubatzke; Provost; student speaker and nursing major, Nicole Crenshaw; Vice President of Academic Affairs, Leslie Kellogg; Board of Trustees Treasurer, John Grover; and several faculty members will be published June 5th at this link:

The graduates of 2020 will receive degrees from 31 areas of study, 12 certificate programs, totaling 413 associate degrees, one bachelor’s degree, and 27 certificates.

One hundred thirty-eight students are graduating with honors, 58 with high honors and 17 with highest honors.

The ceremony includes students who graduated in the Summer of 2019, Fall of 2019 and Spring of 2020 semesters.

Then, on November 14th, LMC has scheduled an open house reception for the Class of 2020 in the Mendel Center’s Grand Upton Hall. Additionally, for those who would like the formality of an in-person event, LMC is also extending an invitation for 2020 grads to participate in the 2021 Commencement Ceremony on May 2, 2021.

For more about the Class of 2020, including a list of graduates and degrees, visit the LMC website.
