Rose State College will conduct a virtual commencement ceremony on May 8 to recognize its 2020 graduating class.
The virtual ceremony will consist of remarks from the chair of the Rose State College Board of Regents, Betty JC Wright, as well as the traditional challenge from the Faculty Senate president and acceptance of that challenge by the president of the Student Senate.
Each graduate will have the opportunity to have their name announced through the virtual ceremony, along with their photo.
“I recognize there is no way that this virtual ceremony can match the excitement or the pomp and circumstance of the real ceremony, but we strongly desire to recognize the accomplishments of our students,” Rose State President Jeanie Webb said. “These are very unusual circumstances that we are facing, and clearly our first concerns are the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff.”
