While the coronavirus pandemic prevented us from holding our usual Commencement ceremony this year, we could not let this momentous occasion pass by without celebrating the PA College Class of 2020!
One June 24 and 26, we hosted special “drive through” graduations on campus. President Mary Grace Simcox and fellow academic leaders donned their regalia (and face masks), and through car windows and safe social distancing, presented graduates with their diploma covers, pins and awards, along with plenty of congratulations and well wishes. Joining in were faculty and staff members who cheered on the new graduates with hand-made signs, noise makers and applause.
We’re so proud of our newest alumni and know that their determination and resilience will serve them and their future patients well. Bravo, Class of 2020!
