On Friday, June 26, 2020, Bladen Community College hosted its first, virtual graduation ceremony honoring its Class of 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the traditional ceremony was canceled. Many elements of a traditional graduation were included with Chad Porter, a nationally renowned motivational speaker and author with local ties, as the featured guest speaker the conferring of degrees by college president, Dr. Amanda Lee. Each graduate was recognized with a contributed photo, quote and degree achievement.
