The largest number of graduates Lamar State College Orange has ever had will walk across the stage later this month in two separate graduation ceremonies.
More than 200 graduates will receive their diplomas, certificates, and institutional awards during the two ceremonies on December 14, 2018 at the Lutcher Theater in downtown Orange. The ceremony for students graduating from the Vocational Nursing program will be at 4:30 p.m., and the ceremony for graduates of all other programs will be at 7 p.m.
Historically, LSCO has held one graduation ceremony — with the exception of August 2018 when two graduation ceremonies were held in the Shahan Events Center on campus because the Lutcher Theater was closed for repairs.
With the enrollment growth on campus, this semester’s large graduating class required an additional ceremony to facilitate graduates as well as all of their supporters.
Campus president, Dr. Thomas Johnson, said this is a great example of the growth at LSCO.
“As president, I will strive to do all we can at LSCO to ensure our students receive a great education as well as provide a memorable commencement to celebrate the reaching of an education milestone,” he said.
