Gaston College held its yearly graduation ceremonies on Friday, May 13.

And whilst it may have been a day traditionally regarded as unlucky by many people, it was a fortunate one indeed for the 876 graduates in Gaston College’s class of 2022. According to the college’s marketing and public information department, 321 of those students were graduated with honors and/or high honors. The graduates received diplomas or associate degrees from 64 curriculum programs.

The 57th annual commencement ceremonies were held in Gastonia at CaroMont Health Park. During the presentation of candidates, the approximately 500 graduates attending the ceremony were recognized individually as they walked across the stage. Students were grouped by division: arts and sciences, career and technical education, health and human services and public safety.

Gaston College President Dr. John Hauser congratulated the students in his speech.

“You have been equipped with new knowledge, new skills and new tools to take the next step in your journey,” he said. “I encourage you to continue leading with selfless service and continue to build a culture of caring.” 

Hauser also thanked Gaston College faculty and staffers for their dedication to student success. And he remarked on the college’s achievements throughout the academic year, including the highly successful re-launch of an athletic program and an award-winning rebranding initiative that introduced a new look and messaging to reflect the unique value that the college brings to students and the local community.
