By James O. Sawyer, IV, Ed.D, Macomb Community College President
Congratulations Class of December 2018! Hard work and determination have brought you to this moment, which stands as a testament to what you can accomplish if you believe in yourself. Graduation from Macomb will forever be a milestone in your history, as this commencement will be in the history of the College.
On Friday, Dec. 14, Macomb will mark its 100th commencement. While all commencement ceremonies are significant events, this one serves as a reminder of the College’s longtime presence in the community. It has served as an educational gateway for 100 classes of graduates and will continue to serve as a gateway for 100 more.
Among those participating in Friday’s ceremony are many who are following in the footsteps of grandparents, parents or siblings by graduating from Macomb. All of us at the College are proud of that fact. It is what inspires us to do our best every day in service to the families of this community.
As we commemorate this 100th commencement together, my sincerest wish is that you leave Macomb inspired by us as well.
