To all of you who are graduating at the end of this quarter, Congratulations!!! That is a huge accomplishment! Whether you are graduating with an Associate’s degree, a high school diploma, or even a Bachelor’s, you should be immensely proud of yourself. It takes perseverance and courage to stick with school all the way through. For some of you, this will be the final leg of your formal education and you are ready to go out into the world and start your chosen career. For others this is but a milestone as you continue your journey towards higher degrees. Either way, this is an occasion we can all take pride in and celebrate.
As we get closer to the big day, do not forget to stay on top of your work this quarter. It’s getting gorgeous outside, and we all want to start summer and not stay inside studying, but doing poorly in a class now can still affect your graduation.
However, in preparation for the big day, remember that cap and gown packets ordered by April 21, 2017 can be picked up June 5 – June 9. If you forgot to order them, see the bookstore or the Clark College website for further instructions. Clark College students who will be graduating this school year are encouraged to try out.
