“Graduation is an important rite of passage,” said Dr. Adams. “We are all sad that we cannot hold a traditional ceremony—congregating amid the COVID-19 pandemic is still too dangerous. However, we are thankful that we live in a time with the advanced technology to give our graduates an alternative. They certainly deserve this recognition.”

According to Adams, the college plans to reschedule its May graduation in the months prior to December 2020.

Southeast’s graduation video will be available for viewing in late May on the College and SKCTC President’s Facebook pages.
