After a two-year hiatus from in-person commencement, Blue Ridge Community College held it’s fifty-fourth graduation on May 16!

As student speaker, Cassady Bush, commented, “There is something truly special about a community college.” And that special feeling was abundantly evident as the more than 200 graduates and their friends and families happily celebrated at the Atlantic Union Bank Center at James Madison University.

Despite the ceremony being postponed and relocated due to stormy weekend weather, nothing could dampen the spirits of those in attendance. Celebrating the achievements of the individuals who had navigated higher education during a pandemic, their perseverance had paid off!   

“Our educational journey was unique, but each of us have developed resilience, determination, and motivation because of it. My encouragement to everyone today is that you would take these three characteristics with you into the next phase of your life, whether it is going into the workforce or transferring to a four-year school,” said Ms. Bush.

For the 2021-22 academic year, BRCC awarded more than 1,100 associates degrees, certificates, and career studies certificates.
