North Lake College Students Get a Fresh Start: College Holds Winter Graduation

IRVING – North Lake College marked the end of the year by celebrating the achievements of approximately fifty GED, Business Office Support Specialist (BOSS) and Workforce Languages graduates on Saturday, December 11, in the Performance Hall.

The GED, BOSS and Workforce Languages programs have always played a vital role in the community. The South Campus has long been a community resource for GED testing and preparation. In addition to those services offered, certified instructors are available for tutoring and special accommodations are available for individuals with physical, psychological or learning disabilities. The BOSS series is an intensive, twelve-week program that produces good employees who possess skills in computer use, time management and customer service. The Workforce Languages program helps individuals expand their reading, writing and grammar skills, as well as learn fundament skills for listening and speaking. All three programs can open doors to a better future.

Rene Castilla, Executive Dean at the South Campus, welcomed the family and friends of the graduates, and Dr. Herlinda Martinez Glasscock, North Lake College President, gave the congratulatory and closing remarks.

"We all felt honored to celebrate the graduates," said Dr. Glasscock. "I left campus that day with a sense of joy, knowing that it was special for our graduates and for our guest speakers."

The "Winter Graduation" is a ceremony the college community looks forward to every year.
