A live feed will be hosted on the college’s social media pages with the health professions pinning ceremony at 5pm and the graduation ceremony at 7pm. As part of the live ceremony, Richland will celebrate its students by providing a safe space for them to walk across stage in their caps and gowns to receive their diplomas from President Cristobal Valdez.
