Gaston College Holds Graduation

Wayne Howard

The 56th Commencement ceremony for Gaston College was held Friday (May 14th) in the new FUSE District Stadium in Gastonia. 

The two-hour ceremony honored 1,825 graduates from the Gaston College classes of both this year and 2020.  Due to COVID-19 restrictions that were in place in May 2020, the college was precluded from holding an in-person commencement ceremony last year, so on Friday, both this year's and last year's graduates received diplomas or associate degrees from 85 curriculum programs.

Each of the approximately 500 graduates who attended the ceremony was recognized individually as they walked across the stage.  Gaston College President Dr. John Hauser congratulated the students, saying, “…you have endured this journey through a pandemic that none of us had ever experienced. You demonstrated tremendous inner strength, amazing perseverance, and an everlasting resilience.” Hauser also thanked Gaston College faculty and staff for their persistence and commitment to student success despite the challenges posed by the pandemic.  

Gaston College anticipates a full return to normal campus operations for the Fall 2021 semester. In-person classes are expected to return to pre-pandemic norms and in-person student services, resources, activities, and sports will resume. 

Gardner-Webb University at Boiling Springs And Lenoir Rhyne University in Hickory held their commencement on May 7th.  Belmont Abbey College will hold its graduation this Saturday (May 15th).

the latest news every day--

Back in 2012, the late Larry Dellinger, having spent over half a century in the newspaper business, saw that the times had changed.  People were getting their news from the internet--more and more every day.  That's when he decided to start the Lincoln Herald.  

Using the internet offered many advantages.  Unlike print newspapers, on the internet, articles could be updated as new information became available.  There was no need to wait to publish news in a next day's or next week's edition.  Also, by not having the expense of newsprint (the paper on which newspapers print their news), the news could be offered FREE to readers.
