The College's graduation ceremonies are scheduled for Tuesday, May 18, 2010, at Bojangles' Coliseum (formerly Cricket Arena), 2700 Independence Boulevard. Entering the arena may be slowed due to security screening; please allow additional time for this.  Faculty members are reminded that one of the responsibilities of a full-time faculty member is to participate in activities which enhance the College's service to students and to the community.  Participation in graduation ceremonies is one way faculty meet this responsibility.

The Adult High School/GED graduation ceremony will begin at 1:30 pm. The speaker will be Ms. Karen Bentley, Mecklenburg County Commissioner since 2006.  Ms. Bentley is currently on the Board of Directors for South Iredell-North Mecklenburg United Family Services and the Board of Directors for University City Partners.  Faculty planning to march in the procession should plan to arrive at 1:00 pm and be in line to march by 1:15 pm.
The College graduation ceremony will begin at 7:00 pm. The speaker will be Mr. Anthony Foxx, Mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina. Mayor Foxx began his political career in 2005 with his election to City Council as an At-Large representative and served two terms before being elected Mayor in 2009. He has been a member of the Mecklenburg County Education Budget Advisory Committee since 2002 and has served on the boards of the Mecklenburg County Bar Foundation, Community School of the Arts, YMCA Camp Thunderbird, Trust for Public Land (Carolinas Region), and Focus on Future leaders.
Faculty planning to march in the procession should plan to arrive at 6:30 pm and be in line to march by 6:45 pm. Faculty members are asked to form two lines when preparing for the processional. Volunteers will be on hand to assist you.

Male and female dressing rooms will be available for faculty, but these will remain unlocked during the ceremony, so please leave valuables locked in the trunk of your car. As this is a dignified ceremony and a special day for our graduates, faculty are reminded to wear appropriate clothing (dress slacks, skirts, or dress) beneath their gowns. Please do not wear shorts, jeans, sneakers, or flip-flops.

Graduation programs will be in the seats for faculty and staff and for graduates; please do not carry programs in the processional.

Thank you for making this a special day for our graduates.
