TVCC Commencement Postponed Until 2021

As TVCC continues to respond to closures and government orders regrading Covid-19, the College has decided to postpone all Commencement activities and events scheduled for June 12, 2020. Since graduation ceremonies are one of the most exciting and gratifying events at TVCC, it is disappointing to not be able to recognize all of our students’ hard work and accomplishments at a public event. All 2020 graduates will be invited to next year's 2021 commencement ceremonies. TVCC will send a commemorative graduation program with student names and degrees along with other graduation gifts to each student in late June.

Library Hosts Online Story Time

We want to make sure the TVCC Library is always somewhere you can go to find peace, even virtually. Starting next week, tune in to our Facebook Live Adult Story Time every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 11 am. For about half and hour, we'll read poetry, short stories, and maybe a short novel or two. Let's find community, stay home, and stay healthy together. The TVCC Library is open to TVCC students and staff with limited services. Learn more at our website.
