Over 950 students are expected to earn degrees, diplomas and certificates from Cape Fear Community College this week.
Two graduation ceremonies are scheduled for Wednesday, May 13 in the Schwartz Center in downtown Wilmington. The first ceremony will be held at 4 p.m. and will be for students earning associate degrees in arts and sciences. After graduation, many of these students will be transferring to four-year universities like UNC-Wilmington, UNC-Chapel Hill, East Carolina University and many others.
The second ceremony at 7 p.m. will feature students graduating from CFCC’s technical and vocational programs with associate in applied sciences degrees, diplomas and certificates. After graduation, many of these students will be headed directly into the workforce in areas including health care, business, computer technology, marine technology, mechanical engineering and a wide variety of trades.
These ceremonies will also include students from both Pender and Wilmington Early College High schools, who will be earning a college degree before they officially graduate from high school.
