RSCC to hold two graduation ceremonies

Roane State will hold two graduation ceremonies this spring — 7 p.m. (eastern), Friday, May 7, for certificate and associate of applied science degree recipients; and 9 a.m. (eastern), Saturday, May 8, for recipients of associate of science and associate of art degrees.

The college is hosting two commencements to alleviate crowding in the gymnasium on the Roane County campus, where both events will be held.

Roane State alumnus Dr. Ron D. Ford will be the keynote speaker at both ceremonies. Ford is president of Wells DC, a real estate holding company, and chief financial strategist for Wells Real Estate Funds, one of the world’s largest owners of office buildings.

A Lenoir City native, Ford received an associate’s degree from Roane State in 1981 and went on to earn a bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee and a master’s from Vanderbilt University. He holds a doctorate in executive management from the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University.
