Due to the COVID-19 situation, MCCC's Spring 2020 Commencement has been cancelled as a traditional on-campus event.
Dear Prospective Graduate,
You’re almost there!
Let me be among the first to congratulate you on your upcoming graduation from Mercer County Community College. I know this is not the way you would like to celebrate your graduation, nor is it the way I would like to celebrate with you. Each year, I look forward to shaking hands of graduates and taking memorable pictures with you in your regalia. But we cannot do so this year due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
However, history will remember you, the Class of 2020! You persevered in spite of unprecedented challenges when we suddenly moved to remote instruction. You continued to stay focused and work hard, even though the pandemic hit you and your family hard economically and emotionally. You did not let anything stop you from achieving your educational goals. You have proven that you are really a special class of graduates.
On behalf of the faculty, staff, and Board of Trustees at Mercer County Community College, I salute you for your achievement thus far, and encourage you to continue to pursue your dreams of tomorrow. Please stay healthy, and best wishes in your future endeavors.
Dr. Jianping Wang
President, Mercer County Community College
