Join us at Spring 2020 Virtual Commencement Ceremony
Please join the college in celebrating the Spring 2020 graduates at a Virtual Commencement Ceremony at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 20. While graduates won’t be on campus, they will be celebrated as their names and awards are announced during a live broadcast on KSWV 99.9 FM/810 AM (live at https://www.santafetoday.com/kswv/) that will also stream live on YouTube at https://youtu.be/RB0xfiYy09c and on SFCVTV-16 on Comcast.
President Becky Rowley, Ph.D., said, “The Spring 2020 graduates will always be remembered for their resilience, persistence and hard work in achieving their goals during this incredibly challenging time. Our community needs the talents of these graduates more than ever.”
“Commencement is a time-honored tradition and we would have loved to hold an in-person ceremony. Our commencement committee, however, explored a variety of options but ultimately determined that with the volume of graduates, family members and community members who would like to support our graduates that an in-person ceremony was not a safe and viable option during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I applaud our Spring 2020 graduates who have overcome so much to reach this milestone. I extend gratitude to faculty and staff who helped our graduates reach their goal.”
Estevan Gonzales, general manager of KSWV, will open the program at 10 a.m. with a brief Q & A session with President Rowley. Representatives of the SFCC Governing Board and Student Government Association President Ian Widrick Martinez will give a brief welcome. Dean Camilla Bustamante, Ph.D., and Dean Jenny Landen will offer short congratulatory messages. Three faculty readers will read the names of the graduates. The ceremony will conclude at 11 a.m.
