BCIT Confers Diplomas to Seniors in Outdoor Campus Ceremonies
Posted by Dr. Nagy on 7/10/2020
On Thursday, our BCIT campuses held the Diploma Conferral ceremonies on each of the campuses. This is a year that will never be forgotten for our seniors, staff, administration and our parents and guardians. After compiling and launching a virtual graduation for our seniors which can be found on our district and campus websites, the administration wanted to honor our graduates and allow them to celebrate this great milestone in their lives with a life high school diploma conferral ceremony outdoors and on each of the BCIT campuses while following most recent social distancing protocols. We are proud of our seniors and acknowledge their grit, tenacity, resilience and perseverance to achieve this milestone in the midst of the Covid-19 Pandemic. This represents the end of the journey for most seniors and a time to close out preparation for the completion of the end of course industry career and technical education credential testing while looking at next steps including entering the workforce, military, post-secondary education at BCIT or college. This is also the time that a pivot is made as all look to September and what that will look like in the new environment. Please see the Mash-ups for the conferral ceremonies inclusive of virtual and live coverage. Congratulations Seniors. You earned this milestone. Best wishes for your new journey.
Dr. Nagy Recognizes Staff and Graduates in a Year Never to be Forgotten

Thank you to all our staff, parents and students for a very productive year in the midst of a pandemic and virtual learning environment and through it all, we learned that as a team we can accomplish great things and we have. We accomplished many milestones this year evident on our Points of Pride found on our websites.
Recently, we also launched our campus promotional videos that were done and prepared by Michele Hill and Christine Jenter. They are works of art and can be found on our websites,or you may visit the following links for the Senior Celebrations Pages. Both also assisted in the preparations and postings of the virtual commencements which can now be found on our websites as well as academic ceremonies for BCIT. Kudos to BCIT Entertainment Technology Teachers: Anthony Hurst, James Gregg and Darian Scalamoni for their efforts in capturing the essence of graduation in a virtual format. Ceremonies such as these are not possible without the planning and efforts of many people under the leadership of the building administrators. We are grateful for their dedication to our students and school districts.
Though not in person, these very creative, thoughtful and heart-warming virtual ceremonies from Pre-Kindergarten to High School to Adult Education provide a memorable and permanent record of major milestones reached. Congratulations to our graduates!
