“All of our Spring 2024 graduates have achieved an incredible goal, and they have not only changed their lives for the better, but they also are lifting up their families and their communities,” said ECTC President Dr. Juston Pate. “Whether they are entering the workforce and starting a high-demand career or continuing their education, we look forward to seeing the Class of 2024 pursue their dreams and become part of the next generation of leaders in our region.”

The ceremony, held at Severns Valley Baptist Church in Elizabethtown, honored students who completed their academic programs in the Spring 2024 semester. ECTC expects to award 725 degrees and diplomas. Additionally, ECTC students completed about 1,200 certificates.  

Credentials awarded include associate in applied science degrees in high-demand career fields like healthcare, business and IT, advanced manufacturing and trades. Graduates also included those who earned an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science and are prepared to transfer to four-year colleges and universities to complete bachelor’s degrees.  

“On behalf of everyone at ECTC, congratulations to our graduates,” Pate said. “You have contributed greatly to the college, and you will always be a part of the ECTC family.”
