Lamar Community College (LCC) recognized their 2022 graduates during the college’s 83rd Annual Commencement Ceremony May 7 at the LCC Wellness Center’s Lopes Gymnasium.
The first two speakers of the ceremony included LCC Student Body President Maddie Thompson and student Aliana Gutierrez. Thompson and Gutierrez were noted for their many personal and school-wide accomplishments at LCC, and both are members of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society.
The commencement address was powerfully delivered by LCC graduate and current LCC professor Mittie Helm.
Also honored were retiring Faculty Senate President Dr. David Frankel and LCC graduate and distinguished Alumni of the Year, late Chicano activist Ricardo Falcon.
The 83rd LCC commencement ceremony was LCC President Dr. Linda Lujan’s last, as she’ll be retiring in December. She had several positive things to say about LCC students during her final commencement address.
Frankel certified the graduating class during the ceremony, Dean of Academic Services Greg Cash and Dean of Student Services Teresa Turner presented degrees and certificates.
The ceremony was live-streamed and the recording can be viewed on the college website. To watch the recorded event, click here:
