GNTC to hold Spring 2020 Commencement Ceremony August 11

March 31, 2020

Georgia Northwestern Technical College’s (GNTC) Spring Commencement Ceremony has been rescheduled to August 11, at 7:00 p.m. at the Forum River Center in Rome.

The decision was made in accordance with Governor Brian Kemp's Executive Order for GNTC to remain closed through the spring semester.  Both spring and summer semester GNTC graduates will be invited to attend the ceremony.

“We want to recognize and celebrate our students’ successes; however, during these extraordinary times, we believe it is best to reschedule the graduation ceremony,” stated GNTC President Dr. Heidi Popham.  “The safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff remains our top priority.”
