Highland Community College Celebrates 48th Commencement

FREEPORT� The northwest Illinois community and friends of Highland Community College are invited to join our 2011 graduates and their families as we celebrate the 48th Annual Commencement Ceremony to be held on Saturday, May 14, 2011, at 10:00 a.m. funny cat pictures

The ceremony will be held outdoors on the beautiful HCC campus in Freeport, IL. Commencement will take place in the courtyard between the Marvin-Burt Liberal Arts Center and Natural Science and Health Center. Guest parking will be located in parking lot D on the south side of campus outside of the Natural Science and Health Center.

The college is expecting the largest number of participating graduates ever so seating will be limited and available on a first come, first served basis. funny pictures

In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be held in the Larry F. Kahl Gymnasium located in the YMCA Sports Center on Highland's Freeport campus. Due to the large number of graduates, tickets will be required to attend the ceremony if held in the Sports Center. funny images

This year's address will be given by Harold Holzer, one of the country's leading authorities on Abraham Lincoln and the political culture of the Civil War era. A prolific writer and lecturer, and frequent guest on television, Holzer serves as chairman of The Lincoln Bicentennial Foundation, successor organization to the United States Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission (ALBC), to which he was appointed by President Clinton in 2000, and co-chaired from 2001�2010. President Bush, in turn, awarded Holzer the National Humanities Medal in 2008. funny photos
