In-person graduations for local high schools and colleges are taking place in the coming weeks with spaced out graduation times and limited capacity at some ceremonies.

“We offered a walk-through graduation last semester, and we were happy to learn that our graduates enjoyed it,” A&M-Central Texas President, Dr. Marc Nigliazzo, said.
“We understand our graduates’ deep desire to celebrate their degree achievement, and we have worked deliberately to plan a variation of our traditional graduation in order to do as much as we can to minimize risk and celebrate safely.”
The Central Texas College spring graduation will begin at 11 a.m. Friday at the Bell County Expo Center and the second session of the graduation will begin at 4 p.m.
