Congratulations again to the Metropolitan Community College Class of 2019!
The official count of grads who “walked” at the May 16 ceremony at Municipal Auditorium: 1,049. That’s the highest number in recent years. About 2,400 students were candidates for graduation (completing their studies last fall, this spring or this summer), earning more than 3,000 associate degrees and certificates.

If you missed the ceremony or just want to watch it again, the livestream is now available on YouTube. Note that we had some technical issues, but this is our best effort at creating a record of the evening:
We shot hundreds of photos that day, so as we go through them we’ll be adding another gallery or two. Here’s the first batch. Click any picture to see it larger. (Photos by Chris Meggs, Andrew Ryan and Tim Engle/MCC)
