BRTC graduation Aug. 11 to include drive-in movie, mascot reveal, and fireworks

POCAHONTAS, AR June 24 – Black River Technical College graduation to be held August 11 will be unlike any graduation event held across the state.

Due to COVID-19, BRTC students who were to graduate in May 2020 were unable to attend a graduation ceremony. In order to honor them, BRTC officials announced a ceremony would be held on August 11.

Because social distancing and masking requirements are still in-place but the college wants to allow students to share their achievements with friends and family, BRTC has partnered with James Junction Drive-In Movie Theater to set up a drive-in movie outside the Randolph County Development Center (RCDC) to air the graduation ceremony live. Students will be socially distanced inside RCDC with some faculty and college administration. Masks will be provided and students will be safely honored with a traditional graduation.
