“Once again, in these unprecedented times, we are extremely proud of each and every one of our students who stayed the course and completed their degree programs under another year of challenging circumstances,” said Wesley Lundburg, president of San Diego Miramar College. “I can’t begin to express how much I admire the perseverance of each graduate.”
Miramar College recently celebrated its graduates by hosting a Graduation Car Parade on campus May 21. Nearly 160 students took part. A video recap of that ceremony can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4vHeDHsIlU
The College expects nearly 400 students to participate in this year’s virtual commencement ceremony.
