When we started the 2019-20 academic year in September, no one could have predicted
that we would be in the midst of a global pandemic before winter quarter was over.
That was then, and now phrases like "social distancing" and "Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)" have become part of our everyday vocabulary.
The pandemic has affected every aspect of our lives, not the least of which is our ability to gather in groups to celebrate major life achievements. This includes our graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020.
In recognition of this challenging time and the loss of an important celebration, Lower Columbia College is dedicating a commemorative bench to the Class of 2020. The following inscription will be installed:
LCC Class of 2020
In recognition of your perseverance
during the global COVID-19 pandemic.
