Hazard Community and Technical College will hold two graduation ceremonies on Saturday, May 5 at The Forum in Hazard, at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
A total of 691 students are receiving 1,340 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 2011-12 academic year - those who graduated in August and December and those who will graduate May 5.
HCTC President Dr. Steve Greiner said, “Graduation is a special milestone in a student’s life and commencement is an opportunity for friends and family to celebrate and recognize the success of their graduate.”
Shelly Parrott will be the morning speaker. She is graduating with the Associate in Applied Science degree in General Occupational/Technical Studies and a diploma in Computer Aided Drafting and Design. Kimberly Jo Baker of HCTC’s nursing program will be the afternoon speaker.
The city of Hazard will provide free trolley serving 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.
