Graduates of Lake Michigan College will be able to celebrate this year’s commencement ceremony in-person…but, not in the traditional way according to school authorities who are adapting to pandemic crowd gathering rules.

Due t0 COVID-19, last year’s graduates had to celebrate virtually, but this weekend LMC’s 74th and 73rd graduating classes are invited to participate in a combination drive-in/drive-thru ceremony.  

The event is slated for this coming Saturday, May 1st, at 2 pm in Parking Lot 2 behind the Hanson Technology Center on the College’s Benton Harbor Campus. 

Graduates and their guests will watch both live presenters and pre-recorded segments from the safety of their vehicles. Large screens will be set up for easy viewing, and sound will be broadcast on a professional sound system and over FM radio. The event also will be broadcast live on LMC’s YouTube channel at this link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8Vnl60N5P6i2yUo_2mdEaw

Presenters include LMC Board of Trustees Chair Jeff Curry; Board of Trustees Vice Chair John Grover; LMC President Trevor Kubatzke; Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs Leslie Kellogg; Student Speaker Harold Milliner; and several faculty members. 

After the ceremony, graduates will be guided through a diploma pickup line where names will be announced, and photos can be taken. Graduates and guests will be expected to follow standard COVID-19 protocols such as social distancing and wearing masks.  

The graduates of 2021 will receive degrees in 29 areas of study and 12 certificate programs, totaling 360 associate degrees and 19 certificates. For more information, you can visit the LMC website.
