Haywood Community College’s 2009 graduation ceremonies will be held on Thursday, May 14 and Friday, May 15 at 7 p.m. Both events will take place on the Clyde campus in the Charles M. Beall Auditorium, Student Services Building. Approximately 400 certificates, diplomas, or degrees will be awarded this year from HCC.

Due to limited space and the increased number of graduates participating, two separate graduation ceremonies will be held this year. The Thursday, May 14th ceremony will include graduates of the following programs of study:  Advanced Technologies, Arts & General Education, and Business & Entrepreneurship.

The Friday, May 15th ceremony will include graduates of the following programs of study:  Creative Arts, Health & Human Services, and Natural Resources Management.

North Carolina Career Readiness Certificates have been awarded to 21 graduates.  This certification is a portable credential that promotes skills and career development for individuals and confirms to employers that they possess basic workplace skills in: Applied Mathematics, Reading for Information, and Locating Information. It is based on the ACT WorkKeys system, a nationally recognized EEOC-compliant industry-driven system of job profiling, assessment and instructional support.  These certificates are signed by the governor of North Carolina.

Master Teacher of the Year Award will also be presented at the ceremony. The Master Teacher Award is a distinguished teaching award presented to the full-time curriculum faculty member who most exemplifies excellence in teaching by demonstrating consistently excellent teaching, leadership, and service to the College and the community. The recipient is the College's nominee for the annual North Carolina Community College System Excellence in Teaching Award.
