Linn-Benton Community College awarded 923 degrees and certificates to 818 students in its 52nd graduating class, including the following Hermiston students:
Breanna Bayer, Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer; Mary S. Hays, Associate of Applied Science occupational therapy assistant; Vanessa V. Stackhouse, Associate of Applied Science diagnostic imaging; Brigitte Valencia Jimenez, Associate of Applied Science occupational therapy assistant.
Although the college was unable to hold a commencement ceremony this year, LBCC is commemorating grads through online recognition and a commemorative video, which serves as a placeholder until the college can celebrate its grads in person.
In June 2021, LBCC will celebrate its first combined commencement in its history — an in-person event that celebrates both the 2020 graduating class and the 2021 graduating class.
This will provide an opportunity for the 2020 grads to take their symbolic walks across the stage and receive their degree.
