May 9, 2014
Nicolet College will hold graduation ceremonies Saturday, May 17, marking the end of an academic year where 521 students earned an associate degree, diploma or certificate from the college.
This year Nicolet added a third ceremony for the first time in order to accommodate all of the graduates, friends, and family members expected to attend the events in the Nicolet College Theatre.
Ceremonies will be held at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3:30 p.m.
“It’s exciting to see so much hard work pay off and so many people go from being students to college graduates,” said Nicolet College President Elizabeth Burmaster.
“It’s a milestone in life for each and every one of these individuals. The skills these graduates possess are exactly what they will need to enter the workforce or to continue their education at four-year colleges and universities.”
Commencement speaker will be Pete Vanney, Director of Facilities at Nicolet. Student speakers will include Toni Bates, Tony Bellman, and Charlotte Fohner. Faculty salutations will be provided by instructors Candy Dailey and Kari Krueger.
In all, Nicolet will have awarded 635 academic credentials for the 2013-14 academic year, which concludes with the end of Spring Semester. Several students earned more than one degree, diploma or certificate.
The Nicolet College Theatre is located in the Learning Resources Center on the Rhinelander Campus, one mile south of the city just off of Hwy. G.
