Greenfield Community College’s 57th Annual Commencement Ceremony will include pre-recorded remarks from GCC President Yves Salomon-Fernandez, David Ram, Professor Emeritus of English and Nicole McGrath, the GCC Class of 2020 Student Speaker. The commencement ceremony will be available for viewing on our GCC YouTube link beginning Saturday, December 12th at 12PM. We look forward to celebrating your accomplishments.  In order to be included in the pre-recorded ceremony, please do the following:
