The ceremony will take place Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 4 p.m. in the Harold and Jean Miner Memorial Library on KCC’s Riverfront Campus, and a reception will follow the ceremony. The community is invited to the inauguration and celebration.

An academic procession, KCC’s ceremonial mace and chains-of-office medallion will be a part of the ceremony.

“This is the first time KCC will host an inauguration, and we are excited to incorporate this important academic ritual into our culture and history,” said Kari Nugent, director of Marketing and Public Relations. “An academic ceremony like this one reinforces that academics are a priority. We hope that you will join us.”
