VC President will be present to hand out diplomas to graduates

VICTORIA, Texas – On Saturday, May 8, Victoria College will air its 2020 and Spring 2021 graduates “walk the stage” via live stream at VC’s Emerging Technology Complex, 7403 Lone Tree Road in Victoria, for the community to watch.

Victoria College President Jennifer Kent will present the graduates their diplomas during the face-to-face walk-through ceremony. Through a continuous and socially distanced line, graduates will walk from their vehicles to the stage. Per graduate, there is a maximum of three guests allowed to attend.

The livestream can be accessed at VictoriaCollege.edu/Graduation.

“This gives our students an opportunity to ‘walk the stage’ and celebrate their degree or certificate,” Kent said. “Family and friends will be able to watch the event via livestream and be a part of the celebration.”

There will be a professional photographer at the event to take pictures, and photos will be available for purchase.

Diplomas will be distributed to graduates at the following times according to the alphabetical order of their last names:

· A-C: 9-9:15 a.m.

· D-G: 9:30-9:45 a.m.

· H-L: 10-10:15 a.m.

· M-P: 10:30-10:45 a.m.

· Q-S: 11-11:15 a.m.

· T-Z: 11:30-11:45 a.m.

For the students who submitted photos, a video will be posted on Victoria College’s social media accounts and on the VictoriaCollege.edu homepage the week after the ceremony.

Due to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations, all participants will be required to wear a facial covering, have their temperatures taken and pass a health screening upon arrival. Social distancing will also be required.
