MATC to Graduate More Than 800 Students in Virtual Commencement Dec. 11
MILWAUKEE (Dec. 9, 2020) — Milwaukee Area Technical College will graduate more than 800 students in a virtual Winter 2020 Commencement which will be made available for viewing at matc.stageclip.com beginning at 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 11. It also will be broadcast by Milwaukee PBS Channel 10.1 at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 19.
The decision to hold a virtual rather than in-person ceremony was made as MATC continues to prioritize health and safety amid the COVID-19 crisis.
Students will graduate from associate degree, technical diploma, apprenticeship and adult high school programs. Each student has been asked to upload photos or video messages to be inserted into the ceremony.
Other speakers include Dr. Vicki J. Martin, MATC president, who also will officially confer the degrees; and Tammy Jo Scholler, who is graduating with an associate degree in human service. A recipient of the MATC Promise for Adults scholarship, Scholler is the first president of MATC’s Black, Indigenous and People of Color — or BIPOC — Allies student organization.
Watch the commencement at matc.stageclip.com beginning at 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 11; or on Milwaukee PBS Channel 10.1 at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 19.
