Socially distant CWC graduation

Central Wyoming College-Jackson graduates stood above the Center for the Arts parking lot where the faculty addressed them during their socially distant graduation in 2020. Graduation will be different this year, but still smaller because of the coronavirus.

Unless you're family, you can't attend the Central Wyoming College-Jackson graduation this weekend, but you can still send your congratulations.

The community college's graduation is at 1 p.m. Saturday, and it is keeping the ceremony small because of the coronavirus. Last year, the graduation was in the parking lot of the Center for the Arts, one of the first events allowed in Teton County after the initial shutdown.

The Class of 2021 will feature 23 students receiving associate's degrees in nursing, business, culinary arts, criminal justice, early childhood education, electrical and psychology, as well as five students finishing their high school equivalency.

President Brad Tyndall will be in attendance to give the keynote speech, and professors and instructors will give short addresses about each graduate.

If you'd like to give the graduates a piece of advice or a virtual high-five, send it to, and school officials will forward the messages.
