Jackson campus students graduated at a packed celebration ceremony held at the East Jackson High School on May 20, 2016. More than two-fifths of the graduates had GPAs of 90% or better and were honored with the National Technical Honor Society designation, and almost two-fifths have already attained employment in their field of study, which makes them yellow cord recipients.
Officiating over her first graduation as Campus Manager, Sara Joblonski said it was a privilege to do so.
“It was an honor to be up there and speak on behalf of our faculty and staff who put their hearts and souls into these students,” said Sara. “It was a packed house and we love to see that. We know how much our students sacrifice to get here. Many of them are parents or work full time. They work really hard, but at graduation, we also get to see how much support they really do have.”
Sara said that the audience was full of family, friends and faculty, both current and former. She said that many instructors and adjuncts like to watch students graduate as the culmination of all their hard work. A professional photographer was also in attendance.

Our Lansing campus will hold its graduation ceremony on Friday, June 3rd.
