Sugg Room – Ketcham Community Center
NCMC is proud of their graduates! In honor of NCMC degree and certificate recipients, faculty, staff, and NCMC Board of Trustees join with honorees at a pancake breakfast immediately prior to rehearsal.
During the Sophomore Send-Off, Phi Theta Kappa provides flowers, for purchase, to graduates. A card is also included and graduates are encouraged to thank a staff member, friend, partner, child, or significant other that aided them in their degree or certificate completion. Fun, laughter and fellowship are also included!
The Sophomore Send-Off began in 2011 and has been a fun addition to commencement activities. The pancake breakfast is paid through a Default Management grant. Graduating sophomores who have taken out loans for their education are required to complete financial aid exit counseling before they leave the institution. Information regarding exit counseling and paying back student loans is provided during the breakfast, as well as on the financial aid website.
