TCC’s 54th graduation exercises, held May 11 at the Ted Constant Convocation Center, celebrated more than 1,700 students who earned associate degrees or certificates, conferred by President Peter A. Spina.

Jason Redman, former Navy SEAL Lieutenant and Chesapeake entrepreneur, gave the keynote address.

TCC’s Chorus sang a moving rendition of the national anthem to open the graduation exercises. They also led the audience in singing TCC’s alma mater to close the event.
