Terrace – Northwest Community College celebrated the accomplishments of its students at this year’s convocation ceremony May 13. Students from throughout the region representing more than 14 areas of study crossed the stage to receive their credentials.
Graduates, faculty, staff, special guests, family and friends filled the REM Lee Theatre in Terrace to join in the celebration. This is Northwest Community College’s 27th convocation ceremony and coincides with its 40th Anniversary.
“We are here to celebrate your dedication and hard work, tenacity, strength and achievement,” President Ken Burt said in his address. “You should all be very proud.”
