217 graduate this spring

May 16, 2021

WENTWORTH – Rockingham Community College held its commencement exercises on Friday, May 14 for the Class of 2021. Mirroring last year’s ceremony with health and safety in mind, the event was spread out over the entire day, enabling small groups into the Robert Keys Gymnasium at a time.

President Dr. Mark Kinlaw prerecorded his message to the Class of 2021, so it can be used when the entire day’s ceremony is released as a video.

“As I think back over the last year and a half, you have had to deal with so much. You have had to face a worldwide pandemic that altered all of our lives, and without question, it altered how we approached your education. We had to change how we provided instruction, how we offered support services and the pandemic made it so you could not engage with fellow students as you had been able to do when you first started with us,” Dr. Kinlaw said. “I am proud of the work you have done, and especially how you adjusted to the changes. You faced changes in your personal life that made continuing your education even harder. You are a special class – you were thrown a curveball, and you adjusted, and made it despite all the challenges.”

Kinlaw further told the graduates that RCC has provided a good education that has equipped them to face life’s challenges.

“Commit to a life of learning; it will be the difference for you along with working hard at whatever you do,” he said, and encouraged the graduates to give back to their community.

Throughout Friday, Dr. Kinlaw presented certificates, diplomas and degrees to the College’s May graduates and December 2020 graduates who also participated in the ceremony.
