WEST COVINA, Calif.—In an effort to mark the achievements of hundreds of graduates who completed their education in the middle of the COVID-19 outbreak, North-West College (NWC) plans to host a virtual Commencement Ceremony on Friday, July 17 at 6 p.m. More than 630 graduates, along with thousands of their family members, friends, and Instructors, will be able to join the event as they celebrate their incredible accomplishments.
“While I had hoped to shake these students’ hands as they crossed the graduation stage, this virtual Commencement does not, for a moment, diminish how proud I am of all their hard work,” explained NWC President Mitchell Fuerst. “They have responded to these challenging times with remarkable courage and compassion—values that have guided our College for more than five decades—and I am honored to welcome them to our alumni family.”
Students will have the opportunity to wear their cap and gown during the ceremony, which are being provided free of charge for this special event. Along with the presentation of graduates, the evening will also include a heartfelt message from President Fuerst. In addition, NWC is providing these individuals with a restaurant gift card for a family meal, also free of charge, so they can celebrate this milestone moment with their family while enjoying a meal together.
