SPECIAL PROGRAM COMPLETION CEREMONY SCHEDULED FOR HOUSTON COUNTY GRADS
With two cohorts of M.A. students and two cohorts of Ed.S. students completing their degree programs at the end of July, Piedmont College will award degrees in a special ceremony at Mossy Creek Middle School, Kathleen, Georgia on Monday, July 28th (6:30 PM)...complete with caps and gowns!
Vice President for Academic Affairs Perry Rettig, Dean of Education Don Gnecco, and Director of Off-campus Graduate Studies Kathy Breithaupt will be among those participating in this special ceremony.
All Piedmont SOE faculty are cordially invited to participate (bring your academic regalia), and especially PC faculty who have travelled to Houston County to teach in these two programs. Please e-mail Kathy Breithaupt if you would like to attend so that we can plan transportation. The trip is approximately 3.5 hours, which, as you might expect, is why we have planned this event. In order for candidates to participate in the Piedmont commencement on July 26th, they would need to leave their homes at 4:30-5 AM.
