ROCKFORD (WREX) – It is graduation season around the country. On Friday, hundreds of students at Rock Valley College got to celebrate their graduation.
RVC’s 53rd annual commencement exercises took place at the Physical Education Center. More than 500 students walked across the stage. Among those who graduated is Rockford Promise’s first group of scholars to graduate since the program started awarding full-tuition scholarships to deserving graduates of RPS 205 schools in 2016. Five scholars received an associate degree from RVC.
RVC says it graduated 1,140 students this spring.
