CMC graduation slated for May 4

Graduation ceremonies for students at Colorado Mountain College’s Alpine Campus are set for 7:30 p.m., Friday, May 4. The ceremony, which is free and open to the public, is at the Steamboat Grand Resort Hotel, 2300 Mount Werner Circle.

Daniel Hanin, a Steamboat Springs attorney and a member of the CMC Board of Trustees, will deliver the commencement address. Other guest speakers include Paul Plochman, who will provide the student welcome, and Anna Flaherty, who will give a farewell address.

Hanin recently was appointed to the board to replace Rob Dick who resigned after moving outside the district. Hanin said it will be his first commencement address. He plans “to give the graduating class something to relate to and prepare them for what they can expect after graduation.”

He said he will encourage the graduates to stand up for their convictions, to be leaders and “to always have the goal of learning how to learn.”

The class of 2007 includes 105 students, including one who is completing two degrees and two who are completing an associate in arts degree and a certificate.

Degrees being conferred include 37 associate in arts, two associate in arts (outdoor education), one associate in arts (business concentration) and one associate in arts (visual arts); eight associate in general studies; four associate in science and two associate in science (biology); and 31 associate in applied science (ski and snowboard business), 15 associate in applied science (resort management) and two associate in applied science (early childhood education).

Certificates of occupational proficiency that will be awarded include two in resort management, one in business, one in retail and ski repair shop technician and one in ski and snowboard business.

The CMC system includes six other campuses in addition to Steamboat Springs. They are in Glenwood Springs, Rifle, Aspen, Vail, Leadville and Summit County. The college also has an online program.
