It started with a bold step to make a change, to tackle a new experience, to take on a difficult but incredibly rewarding task. For the students taking part in Laramie County Community College’s annual commencement and nurses’ pinning ceremonies, it now means a start on a new chapter in their lives.
The college graduation ceremony takes place on Saturday, May 11, at 7 p.m. at Storey Gymnasium, and Sen. John Barrasso will deliver the keynote address. Though not all are attending the ceremony, this year 677 graduates will receive a total of 706 degrees and academic certificates.
Earlier in the day, the 40 students in the nursing program’s Linda Richards Nursing Class will participate in its pinning ceremony. That event will be held at 1:30 p.m., at the Cheyenne Civic Center.
Additionally, the GED graduation will take place at the Civic Center at 10 a.m. that day. More than 325 students are eligible to receive their GED certificates this year. Wyoming Supreme Court Justice Michael Davis will deliver the keynote address for this event.
