Commencement included all three campuses together for first time

More than 400 Southeast Community College graduates from 2020 and the 2021 Spring Semester came out to celebrate their accomplishments at a commencement ceremony on Wednesday, May 5, at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln. Gov. Pete Ricketts was the featured speaker.

Since last year’s ceremony was virtual because of COVID-19, all SCC graduates from 2020 – spring, summer and fall – were invited to participate. This was the first time SCC students from the Beatrice, Lincoln and Milford campuses attended in a single ceremony.

Associate degrees, Diplomas and Certificates were awarded. There was a total number of 642 graduates from all three campuses.
