Lake Region State College today announced that its spring graduation and other recognition activities would be canceled due to the COVID-19 situation.
LRSC President Doug Darling said as the college moves courses online for the remainder of the semester where possible and cancels other campus and community events, it became apparent that holding traditional commencement activities in May would be unfeasible.
"We know this is disappointing to students who were looking forward to this ceremony, but waiting to cancel graduation would make planning a successful event difficult. LRSC is so proud of its students. Graduation day is a celebration for the whole LRSC family. We love to share that day with them," Darling said.
The college's Spring 2020 graduation, Nursing’s May pinning ceremony, and Adult Learning Center graduation are canceled. The Athletic banquet scheduled for May 14 has been canceled and the Booster drawing will take place during the Booster Golf Tournament in July.
