Wytheville Community College to commemorate graduates online


WYTHEVILLE, Va. (WFXR) – To celebrate the graduating Class of 2020, Wytheville Community College will hold a virtual graduation ceremony on Saturday, May 30 at 2 p.m.

The college joins the growing list of colleges and universities around the state and across the country that have canceled in-person commencement ceremonies in the wake of the pandemic.

“We are extremely proud of our students and their accomplishments. Commencement is a milestone for students and even though we cannot hold a traditional ceremony at this time, we want to honor our graduates through this virtual ceremony.”

Dr. Dean. E. Sprinkle, Wytheville Community College President

The virtual ceremony will be posted to YouTube, Facebook and the homepage of the college’s website and will be pre-recorded to include a message from Sprinkle along with a reading of each graduate’s name and degree, diploma or certificate earned.

Graduates can also submit a photo to be included in the video.

More details about the online ceremony can be found here.
