LCCC to hold virtual ceremony to celebrate this spring’s graduates

CHEYENNE, WYO. – Because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the social limitations in place, Laramie County Community College will hold a virtual celebration for this spring’s graduates.

These students have been asked to submit a photo and a message that will be featured during the online event. The video will include messages from Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon, LCCC President Dr. Joe Schaffer, a guest student speaker, and a tribute to all those who earned their degree or certificate with LCCC this spring. Students who do not submit that information will still be recognized by name during the feature.

“We know that nothing can take the place of the energy and excitement of a live ceremony,” said Dr. Melissa Stutz, LCCC’s vice president of student services, “but we hope that this moment will celebrate these students and their tremendous accomplishment.”

The video will be available at lccc.wy.edu/commencement by noon on Wednesday, May 20. It also will be linked through the college’s social media channels.

Later this year, LCCC officials will determine the viability of a separate in-person ceremony for graduates.
