After a two-year pause due to COVID-19, Cascadia College’s Class of 2022 walked across the stage for their degrees on June 10. Virtual ceremonies were held for the classes of 2020 and 2021, however the excitement of an in-person ceremony filled the campus.

During the college’s 22nd graduation ceremony, a number of commencement speeches brought up the resilience and drive of the Class of 2022. Graduates who wanted to walk in the in-person ceremony from the previous two years were also welcomed. A total of 564 students applied to graduate from Cascadia College while 131 students attended the ceremony. According to Cascadia College, over 1,000 guests attended the event.

“Our students have not only earned their degrees, but they have done so much during a pandemic,” said Dr. Eric Murray, President of Cascadia College. “Their extraordinary skills and abilities to achieve this accomplishment makes them our very own superheroes.”
