Commencement Set at Highland
Plans have been finalized for the 2015 Commencement exercises at the Highland Community College campus. The 2015 Commencement will be held outdoors on Friday evening, May 15, at 7:00 pm on Kessinger Field on the HCC campus. The Highland Commencement will be broadcast live by accessing the College’s Web site at www.highlandcc.edu. There will be a rotating banner on the College Homepage that will provide viewers with instructions.
Commencement exercises at the HCC Technical Center in Atchison will be held on May 14 at 7:30 pm in the Atchison High School gymnasium. That same day, the pinning ceremony for nursing graduates will take place at 5:30 pm, also in the AHS gymnasium.
Commencement exercises at Highland will begin with the traditional march down the hill by the HCC faculty and graduating students into the stadium, led by the Kansas City Celtic Pipes and Drums bagpipe troupe. Those assembled will join in singing the HCC Alma Mater, followed by the keynote address. After special music from the HCC music department, HCC President David Reist will announce special awards, including the annual Bruning Award for faculty development, and present the class of 2015. Once the degrees have been conferred by Joyce C. Rush, chairperson of the HCC Board of Trustees, the Kansas City Celtic Pipes and Drums will lead the graduates and faculty from the stadium.
