FAIRFIELD — Kennebec Valley Community College plans to virtually graduate 482 students from more than 30 degree and certificate programs at 10 a.m.  Saturday, May 15.

Upon graduating from the college, many students will enter Maine’s workforce in entry-level positions, while others will continue their academic journey at four-year universities.

The commencement ceremony will celebrate the accomplishments of graduating students throughout their tenure at KVCC, especially amid the unforeseen challenges and obstacles of a global pandemic. KVCC students experienced a drastically different educational experience than years past, all while completing their studies, achieving their academic and career goals, and caring for themselves and their families during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Heather Johnson, commissioner of the Maine Department of Economic & Community Development, will be the ceremony’s keynote speaker.

The ceremony will be available streaming via https://www.kvcc.me.edu/, courtesy of Headlight Audio Visual. For more information, visit the college’s website.
