WACO, TX — In an effort to keep the health, wellness, and safety of the graduates, their families, and the community as a top priority during this unprecedented time, McLennan Community College will forego its traditional spring commencement ceremony scheduled for May 12.

The College will celebrate the accomplishments of the more than 700 students completing degree and certificate programs this spring with a virtual graduation celebration. The celebration will include a message from MCC President Dr. Johnette McKown, words of encouragement from distinguished faculty members, special recognition of the graduates who maintained a 4.0 grade point average, as well as personal acknowledgment of all the graduates by name and well wishes from members of numerous departments and divisions from across the campus.

The celebration will be available for viewing by all graduates, their families, and the community later this month on the College’s website
