Piedmont Technical College Graduation Set for May 3

Piedmont Technical College will hold two spring commencement exercises on Thursday, May 3. An afternoon ceremony for Arts & Science, Health Science and Nursing graduates will take place at 3 p.m. An evening ceremony for Agriculture, Business, Computer Technology, Engineering/Industrial Technology and Public Service will be held at 7 p.m. Both commencements will take place in the James Medford Family Event Center on PTC’s Lex Walters Campus in Greenwood.

Tina Magnussen, who is graduating from PTC’s associate degree nursing program, will be the commencement speaker for the 3 p.m. ceremony. Magnussen began her career in law enforcement but became interested in health care after delivering more than one baby on the job. She plans to begin pursuing a bachelor’s in nursing this fall while gaining work experience at a local health care facility. Her ultimate goal is to work in critical care nursing.

Graduate speakers for the 7 p.m. ceremony are Hunter Gravely and Kayce Porterfield. Gravely is a PTC Presidential Ambassador graduating with an associate degree in building construction technology. He already has secured a professional position as a field architect with the Columbia-based McCrory Construction Company.

Porterfield, who graduates with an associate degree in business administration/accounting, will describe the many personal challenges she faced while a student, including the tragic death of her father. She persevered, however, not only completing her coursework but earning five rigorous national bookkeeping certifications that were completely optional. Porterfield plans to return to PTC in 2019 to pursue a bachelor’s degree through the Columbia College Bridge program.

Due to limited seating, tickets will be required for all guests attending the graduation ceremony. Each individual ticketholder, including children, will be entitled to one seat only.
