LWC: Virtual ceremony on Dec. 12 for Winter Commencement

By Venus Popplewell

Lindsey Wilson College will not hold its traditional winter commencement ceremony due to concerns about large gatherings and travel related to COVID-19.

Instead, the College is making plans for a virtual ceremony to be made available at 10amCT on Saturday, December 12, 2020, on the college's Youtube channel. The ceremony is scheduled to last about 40 minutes, and will include all degree levels. The pre-recorded video can be accessed at this link:

Students registered for commencement ceremonies between May 2020 and December 2020 have been invited to participate in the virtual event.

"Our 2020 graduates deserve to be recognized for their hard work and commitment to staying the course in the face of unimaginable obstacles," said LWC President William T. Luckey Jr., "While this situation is not ideal, we certainly hope we can make the experience as memorable as possible."

Students can expect many of the traditional components of an in-person ceremony including a downloadable program in pdf format, a faculty processional, a performance by the Lindsey Wilson Singers and greetings from President Luckey.

The decision to move the ceremony to a virtual format is in compliance with local health department guidelines with the safety and well-being of the LWC community of utmost concern.

Watch for updates via Lindsey Wilson's social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook.
