Hazard Community and Technical College will hold two graduation ceremonies on Saturday, May 11 at The Forum in Hazard, at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
A total of 677 students are receiving 1,413 credentials this Spring. Associate in arts, associate in science, and associate in applied science degrees will be awarded along with diplomas and certificates. These numbers represent all graduates for the 2012-13 academic year - those who graduated in August and December and those who will graduate May 11.
HCTC President Dr. Steve Greiner said, “Graduation is a time for great celebration. We join families in celebrating the accomplishment of all of our students. Seeing each student walk across the stage is very meaningful to us.”
Sharon Morris will be the morning speaker. She was a student with the Kentucky School of Bluegrass and Traditional Music. Christan Norton of HCTC’s nursing program will be the afternoon speaker.
The city of Hazard will provide free trolley service beginning at 8 a.m. The trolley will allow those who park near the Hazard High School football field to be driven to The Forum entrance.
The public is invited to both events.
