raduation is not just a ceremony. It’s an acknowledgment of the hard work, dedication, and perseverance of students throughout the years that they have been studying.
At ABM College’s upcoming convocation on May 17, we’re proud to celebrate the students who achieved their educational goals and are ready to accomplish great things in their respective fields.
With graduates from different subject areas like health, business, and technology, ABM College ensures their alumni are well prepared for the workforce and inspire innovation and change wherever they go.
Graduation is the defining moment in a student’s educational career as it’s remembered as a milestone for years to come. It’s a time that many look back on fondly and enjoy reminiscing.
It’s an extra special occasion for ABM College graduates as there’s a unique cohort of students who are new immigrants, single parents, career changers, and more. So, taking the time out to better themselves and improve their future through education is very admirable. It’s not easy to balance so many things at once, that’s why our graduates should take great pride in being able to walk the stage and receive their diplomas.
The event itself is a turning point in many people’s lives – not just for the graduates, but for their families, and the industry they’ve chosen to enter as well. It symbolizes that life is constantly changing and new opportunities, challenges, and avenues will present themselves as time goes on. Getting an education is a stepping stone to greater things.
Many of our graduates have gone on to pursue careers right after graduation, making a positive impact in their communities and industries.
