Highland Community College Celebrates 53rd Commencement
4/29/2016

FREEPORT --  The northwest Illinois community and friends of Highland Community College are invited to join the 2016 graduates and their families as they celebrate the 53rd  annual Commencement Ceremony to be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 14, 2016.

The address to the class of 2016 will be given by Dr. Duane M. Ford, recently retired president of Southwest Wisconsin Technical College (SWTC). Prior to serving as SWTC president, Dr. Ford was dean of the College of Business, Industry, Life Science and Agriculture at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville from 1999 to 2011.  

The ceremony will be held outdoors on the HCC campus in Freeport. Commencement will take place on the courtyard between the Marvin-Burt Liberal Arts Center and Natural Science and Health Center. Guest parking will be located in parking lot D on the south side of campus outside of the Natural Science and Health Center. 

The college is expecting a large number of participating graduates; as such, seating will be limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis. 

In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be held in the Larry F. Kahl Gymnasium located in the YMCA/Sports Center on Highland's campus. Due to the large number of graduates, tickets will be required to attend the ceremony if held in the Sports Center.
