Western Nevada College will celebrate its 2022 graduates with three days of drive-through ceremonies on its campuses.
Ceremonies start at 9 a.m. today and Tuesday in Carson City and Thursday in Fallon.
Nearly 600 students will graduate, including 110 from the Jump Start College, where high school students can earn college degrees.
“The drive-through ceremonies allow a very personal experience for our graduates, with friends and family at the base of the stage to cheer on their graduate,” said WNC Director of Admissions and Records Dianne Hilliard. “WNC believes the drive-through celebration is a tremendous way to honor our graduates.”
Today’s ceremony will be for liberal arts graduates. On Tuesday, those earning associate of business, applied science, general studies and bachelor of applied science degrees and certificates of achievement will be honored.
“Western Nevada College has hosted these type of ceremonies for the past two years and they have been a huge success, with extremely positive feedback from students, family and friends of the graduates, and others who attended,” organizers said.
The ceremonies will be livestreamed so friends and relatives who are unable to accompany the grad in his or her celebration car or truck can watch the event live.
