WKCTC Spring Commencement Postponed to December
By WestKyStar Staff
PADUCAH - West Kentucky Community and Technical College announced more than 1,100 students who were conditionally eligible to receive one or more associate degrees, diplomas or certificates during Spring 2020.

Due to COVID-19 pandemic, WKCTC has been closed to in-person classes and has been offering remote learning since mid-March. Following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Governor Andy Beshear, the college also postponed its Spring Commencement which would have been held Saturday, May 9 at the Luther F. Carson Four Rivers Center.

In a video tribute released Saturday on the college's social media channels, WKCTC President Anton Reece said while he was disappointed the college had to postpone the ceremony, the health and safety of its students, faculty, staff and families was paramount.

"Even though we weren't able to celebrate in person, I didn't want to let this day pass by without commending you for your hard work to reach this milestone and to celebrate your accomplishments!" Dr. Reece said in the video, adding that the college expects to hold a combined Spring and Fall Commencement on Saturday, December 19 at the Carson Center. "We are proud of you and look forward to celebrating with you at the Carson
Center in December."
