More than 635 Haywood Community College graduates finished one chapter to begin another as they graduated from the college recently.

Receiving certificates, diplomas, or degrees, the graduates reached one goal and will now enter the workforce, continue their education, or pursue other lifelong goals.


Family members, friends, and loved ones were on hand at both of HCC’s graduation ceremonies to witness this milestone in the lives of the graduates. Sometimes family members were side-by-side graduating together. This was true for brothers Levi and Zebulon Ross as both finished the electronics engineering and machining programs.

For Haywood Early College graduates, they received a high school diploma and an Associate degree.

HCC offers many programs of study. For more information, please call 627-4500 or visit on the Internet.
