Okay not literally…but our very own Clark College Penguin graduates will be walking across the stage on Thursday, June 16th to commemorate their educational achievements.
Every year in the Spring, Clark College administrators and staff hold a ceremony to present Clark graduates with their completed degrees or certificates. This year graduation is going to be held at The Sunlight Supply Amphitheater at 7:00 p.m. on a warm June evening. The parking and entrance gates will be open by 5:00 p.m. so you can get there early. Graduates must be lined up and ready to go by 6:30 p.m.
I encourage all the graduates and current Clark students to take a second to think about what graduation means for them. For some students graduation is the start of a new career. For others it’s a big move to a new university, and/or it’s a new step in their education. These are all goals and achievements to celebrate! I find that when things end, huge beginnings start to unravel. I am beyond excited for all of my graduating Clark College students and especially my graduating co-workers. We have Student Ambassadors Lauren, Christian, Patricia, and Michael all graduating this June. I couldn’t be more proud of them and their accomplishments.
Make sure to bring your name card with you to commencement if you are graduating because this is the card they will be reading as you walk across the stage. Also know that any guests that are there supporting you on your big day may take photos of you from their seats only. But don’t worry, we will be having a professional photographer at commencement taking pictures of you. Any seating or parking concerns can be addressed to Disability Support Services at 360-992-2314.
I wish all you graduates the best of luck in your next adventure in life!
