A tradition that seems as old as collegiate commencement ceremonies themselves is mortarboard messages. Graduates send messages of thanks to family and friends, inspirational thoughts and dreams for the future. It’s a way for graduates to show their individuality through words and designs and the QCC Class of 2021 was no exception.

Take a moment and be inspired by these incredible graduates who pushed through the challenges they faced and came out stronger! For those grads who didn’t get a chance to send pictures of their mortarboard messages, there’s still time!

Send your name, photo and degree or certificate major to khutner [at] qcc.mass.edu to be featured in a future issue of the QCC Wyvern Guardian newsletter.
