Midlands Technical College’s graduation ceremony has been rescheduled for Dec. 9 at Colonial Life Arena.
The graduation was originally to take place on May 6.
Details about the event are still pending, according to a news release from MTC. The ceremony will honor students who completed their degree and certificate coursework in fall 2019, spring 2020, summer 2020 and fall 2020.
Students who finished their degrees this spring will receive diplomas in the mail next month but are still invited to walk across the stage in December.
“Students who completed their work in the midst of this pandemic are to be commended. It is a tremendous accomplishment,” Ronald Rhames, president of MTC, said in the release. “Our leadership recognizes the dedication and perseverance of our students, and we are determined to hold an in-person ceremony so they will be honored appropriately.”
Each year, MTC graduates more than 2,000 students in 100 academic programs.p
