School Chairpersons will present the departmental award and VP of Student Services will present the Cagan awards. President Del Balzo will confer our graduates’ degrees. All graduates names and photos will be presented along with a video of the Class of 2021.

>Those who have ordered a cap and gown through Jostens, will receive their items within the next several weeks.
