2016 IEC-FWCC Graduation and Awards Ceremony
This year’s Apprenticeship Graduation and Awards Ceremony will take place at Hillsborough Community College, Dale Mabry Campus in the Auditorium of the Student Services Building on Thursday, May 12, 2016.

Graduates are expected to arrive at 4:30 PM.  A group photo session will take place at 4:45 PM followed by a walkthrough of the event.  The Graduation & Awards Ceremony will start at 5:30 PM.  There will be no reception before the ceremony which means there will be no food served.  Please take into account traffic when making arrival plans.  Shirt, tie and slacks for men; and a dress or pant suit for women is the expected dress code.  Please do not wear jeans or sneakers.

The graduation caps and gowns have arrived and will be ready for pick up at the Wire-Off Competition on April 22nd, after the breakdown of boards staring at 4:00PM.  This will give each of you an opportunity to hang the gown and, if needed, iron on low heat to remove wrinkles.  Once you pick up your gown, take a few minutes to look over it prior to graduation.  Make sure the gown is the proper size and you are not missing your cap, tassel, or signet; and that you have received the correct honor cord(s)—see below.  Please notify Arlene Solana as soon as possible if there are any issues.  We will bring a few extras to the ceremony if available, but quantities will be limited. 

All graduates will be given at least one honor cord to be worn around your neck with your cap and gown.  Below is a representation of colors:
                                LIGHT BLUE:       Commercial Apprentice
                                RED:                       Wire-Off Competitor
                                R/WH/BL:            Four years of Perfect Attendance
