Midlands Technical College will host its 2021 Commencement Ceremony at Segra Park in Columbia on May 1st at 10:00 a.m.
“I am very pleased that we are returning to an in-person graduation ceremony,” said MTC President Dr. Ronald L. Rhames. “Face coverings will be required, and social distancing protocols will be in place, but this will be a traditional commencement celebration with all the pomp and circumstance our graduates deserve.”
The commencement address will be delivered by attorney Bianca Williams. At MTC, she earned an Associate in Arts degree with Honors and a Paralegal Associate Degree while serving as a student ambassador and the President of Phi Theta Kappa. Williams earned a Business Administration Degree from the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina and a law degree from North Carolina Central University. She founded the AFFC Law Firm, as well as the nonprofit Premature Millionaires. The nonprofit’s purpose is to provide financial, emotional, spiritual, and mentoring resources for foster children in and aging out of the system.
In case of inclement weather, the rain date is May 22, 2021. More specific information about graduation eligibility and requirements, where to watch the live stream and how to order tickets will be provided on the MTC website at MIDLANDSTECH.EDU/graduation.
