Flowers for graduates will be available for purchase at Lamar Community College’s (LCC) Commencement on May 8th and Nursing Pinning ceremony on May 7th.

Dorothy Choat, LCC financial aid coordinator, will be on-site for both ceremonies selling flowers for friends and family of graduates to purchase for their soon-to-be alums. She will be located near the entrance of the LCC Wellness Center.

Choat said the flowers, which start at $20, are a great way to commemorate the day and make graduates feel special. They also help to support a good cause.

“The graduation scholarship assists students who are unable or have difficulty paying the graduation fee due to financial hardship,” Choat said. “Thanks to the proceeds from the flower sale, these students are also able to participate and walk in the commencement ceremony and celebrate their achievements here at LCC.”
