WVC '21 graduations, nurses pinnings will take place virtually

Deadline to apply for graduation May 3
WENATCHEE/OMAK - Wenatchee Valley College has announced the decision to host both graduation ceremonies and the nurses pinning ceremony virtually for 2021.

The difficult decision was made in collaboration with college administrators, student services staff and student government.

We understand that this news may be disappointing for our graduates and their families and we know the hard work and dedication our students have put in to completing their degrees,” said Erin Tofte, WVC associate dean of campus life, equity and inclusion. “However, we feel an obligation to our students, employees and community at large to make the safest choice we can.”

WVC will be using the same service as last year, which allowed students to submit photos and videos to be shared during the virtual live-stream ceremony. The deadline to apply for graduation is Monday, May 3. Graduates will then receive separate instructions to submit their materials and to apply to be a part of the virtual ceremony.

Not all of our students are local. We have students from three different counties, international students and student families from multiple states who attend graduation,” Tofte said.

The Wenatchee campus virtual commencement is currently scheduled for Friday, June 18. Omak campus is scheduled for Saturday, June 19. The nurses pinning ceremony is scheduled for Friday, June 18.

Graduation speakers have been confirmed. Speaking will be Jean Rodgers, Omak Business Faculty, and Rocío Carrión of I AM Empowerment. Learn more about Carrión at iamempowermentllc.com.

More details will be announced as the date draws closer and updates will be posted at wvc.edu/Graduation.
