August graduation ceremony cancelled

In light of rising cases of COVID-19 in the area and in compliance with the latest orders from Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Northeast Texas Community College has made the decision to cancel the in-person summer graduation ceremony originally planned for August 14.
“We know this is such an important day for both NTCC and our students.  It saddens us greatly that we will not be able to gather together this year with our deserving graduates and their families in a manner that complies with current state mandates. The safety of our students and employees remains our top priority,” Dr. Josh Stewart, NTCC Vice President for Student and Outreach Services, said. 
In lieu of an in-person ceremony, NTCC will develop a virtual graduation presentation that will be streamed online. Further details about how to access the virtual graduation will be announced at a later date. 
“Our team is working hard to put together a virtual experience to honor all of our May and August graduates. We hope it will be a memorable keepsake for them to appreciate and look back on,” Stewart said.
