HCTC Set to Hold First Full Graduation Ceremony Saturday, May 7 at The Forum

Hazard Community and Technical College (HCTC) is set to hold its first full commencement ceremony since 2019 on Saturday, May 7, 2022. Though there will be three separate ceremonies held that day, this will be the first “back to normal” graduation the college has held since COVID restrictions forced changes in 2020 and 2021.

“It’s so exciting to be able to have graduates walk across the stage for graduation this year,” HCTC President Jennifer Lindon said. “Not only are the graduates welcome, but we’re happy to be able to accommodate family and friends who want to see their graduate take that walk and get that diploma.”

The three ceremonies will be held at The Forum, 101 Bulldog Lane, Hazard, KY 41701, at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 4 p.m. Rehearsal for graduation will be held at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 6, at The Forum.

The nursing pinning ceremonies will also be held that same weekend in Jackson and Hazard. The practical nursing ceremony will be held May 6, 2022, at 7 p.m., at the Lees College Campus E.O. Robinson Intergenerational Building at 601 Jefferson Ave., Jackson, KY 41339. The registered nursing ceremony will be held, May 8, 2022, at 2 p.m., at the Hazard Campus First Federal Center at One Community College Drive, Hazard, KY 41701.
