El Paso Community College to celebrate 2020 Graduates with Virtual Ceremony

El Paso Community College (EPCC) will hold a virtual commencement ceremony to celebrate the Class of 2020 which includes 4,070 graduates from the spring, summer and fall.

“Graduating from college, especially in these times, exemplifies student’s determination to continue and persevere,” Dr. William Serrata, EPCC President, said. “El Paso Community College students not only know how to adapt, but these graduates will also shape our future and make a powerful difference.”

Graduation is an incredibly important milestone and while officials had hoped to hold a traditional in-person graduation ceremony, the event was moved virtual in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Officials add that graduating in the midst of a global pandemic is no small feat; therefore, the virtual ceremony will focus on the strength and resiliency of EPCC students and how these unprecedented circumstances have prepared them well for future success.

Serrata will host the virtual commencement and the commencement speaker will feature Emma Schwartz, MPH, President of the Medical Center of the Americas (MCA) Foundation.

“I am proud to celebrate the great accomplishments of these graduates, to acknowledge their hard work and dedication they invested in themselves to attain a bright future for everyone around them.”

The event will be live streamed on the EPCC website and on EPCC TV Channel 13.2 on December 19, 2020 beginning at 7:00 p.m.
