CGCC Reaches Milestones With Grad Ceremony
When Columbia Gorge Community College holds its 2013-14 graduation Friday afternoon, it will mark a pair of milestones. This year’s class is the first to receive diplomas under the college’s recently awarded independent accreditation, and the ceremony will take place in the recently opened Fort Dalles Readiness and Workforce Center. Ceremonies begin at 3 p.m. Friday, and is open to the public. At the ceremony, graduates will be given diploma covers along with a personally signed note from CGCC President Frank Toda. Toda also plans to hand-sign the approximately 300 degrees and certificates, bearing the new, official CGCC seal. Official diplomas will be mailed to students a few weeks after graduation.
