Bladen Community College Makes Plans for A Graduation Celebration on May 14th
On the evening of Friday, May 14th, Bladen Community College will honor its Class of 2021 with a special celebration event on campus including a virtual graduation ceremony. Our special campus celebration activities will start at 6pm until 8pm with the officially launch of the graduation ceremony video on a big outdoor screen starting with dusk at 8:15. The video can also be viewed by the public with a click on a link that will be embedded on the college’s website www.bladencc.edu and on the college’s Facebook page. Chad Porter, a nationally renowned motivational speaker and author with local ties, will be the featured guest speaker. Porter is the author of a best seller book, Severed Dreams, and has told his story of resiliency across the country to business conferences and in the locker room of NFL teams. Plans include the recognition of each graduate and the video is expected to be about an hour in duration.
During the on campus special event, graduates will have the opportunity to have a professional photograph taken in cap and gown with the president of the college, receive a commemorative graduation gift, music, and enjoy activities with complimentary, festive food choices. In addition, Chad Porter, will be on hand to autograph his bestselling book, Severed Dreams.
Graduates are urged to submit a photo and tribute to the college as soon as possible to be used during the graduation ceremony video. Detailed instructions on how to get that done and a video tutorial to assist is on a dedicated web page of the college’s website. Also, college staff is available by phone or email to guide graduates as well.
Dr. Amanda Lee, President of Bladen Community College, remarked in a communication that recently went out to graduates, “No one could have anticipated the impact of this virus on our lives, I am deeply grateful for your remarkable resilience and that of our faculty and staff. Your hard work will continue to serve you well in the future. I look forward to celebrating with you and your families, friends, our BCC family on Friday, May 14th!
