Graduation is not only an exciting time for students but also for their families and friends. For General Education Development (GED) students completing their high school equivalency certificates from Del Mar College’s program, graduation represents a major accomplishment not to be missed.
On Thursday, June 21, the College’s GED Program will award certificates to approximately 110 individuals participating during their graduation ceremony out of the 167 students who have completed the program since July 2011. This year’s keynote speaker is Dr. Roland Quezada, Director for School Leadership Services with the Corpus Christi Independent School District.
To ensure parents, grandparents, spouses, children and best friends have the opportunity to see graduates walking across the stage in Richardson Performance Hall, Del Mar College will broadcast the event live on Digital Cable Channel 19 (Time Warner Cable and Grande Cable only) beginning at 7 p.m.
Del Mar College will also Webcast the ceremony live beginning 15 minutes before the 7 p.m. event starts. Individuals can view the ceremony by going to www.delmar.edu/webcasts.aspx.
