JSCC announces task force for graduation plans

These times of uncertainty and constant change have made the decision of conducting a large gathering such as the Jackson State Community College’s graduation an unusual challenge. The administration of JSCC has assigned a graduation task force that will develop a plan for the 2020 graduation ceremony. This plan will be ready for approval by the president by June 5.

The task force will develop a way to survey the entire campus community, gather their input, and bring forth recommendations for the new president who will be appointed by the Tennessee Board of Regents.

The interim president has approved the purchase of caps and gowns. Student Services will be contacting all students eligible for graduation and will have the graduation regalia available as soon as possible. “Having caps, gowns, and cords available for photo opportunities has been a primary request of graduates and their parents,” said Robin Marek, interim vice president of Student Services. “We want to get these significant mementos of accomplishment to students as quickly as possible.”
