After Two Years of Online Graduation, This Year, The Graduates are Finally Coming Back to Graduating In-Person

During the pandemic, Graduates have only been able to have their graduation ceremonies online, something which lessened the experience greatly. After twelve years of studying, students want to have the fanciest, most fabulous graduation. However, due to the pandemic, they were deprived of this kind of graduation.  

In Winnipeg, for the first time in two years, the Red River College (RRC) Polytech is celebrating the graduates of the year 2022 in a huge ceremony that will be held for more than two thousand students. This stunning ceremony is an exciting and refreshing change for all RRC Polytech graduates.

When Dr.Christine Watson, Vice-President Academic of RRC Polytech, was asked to comment on this event, she said, “Tonight’s ceremony marks a fresh start for our graduates. They have accomplished a great deal through challenging circumstances — they truly deserve a celebration; our convocation ceremonies represent opportunity and new beginnings. We are excited to be gathering together again to celebrate our students’ achievements.”

During the event, students were seen to be ecstatic and motivated to pursue their chosen careers or continue with further learning. Students who also excelled in academic and technical excellence, among other important aspects were awarded the Lieutenant Governor’s Medal Award. 

“At RRC Polytech, I have been able to develop meaningful and impactful relationships with amazing students and communities, which has helped to further develop my portfolio of purpose. I now feel capable of tackling the real-life situations in front of me,“ said Lucas Taryn, a graduate of the Community Development Program and a carrier of the Lieutenant Governor’s Medal.

This event means so much to all because, after two years of virtual education and online graduation, families, students, and teachers are finally able to celebrate face-to-face and share their experiences and happiness.
