MCC Spring 2020 Graduation - Social Media Celebration!

Published Thursday, May 7, 2020 at 4:24pm

Dear Class of 2020 Graduate,

MCC is launching a special social media campaign on May 26 to celebrate and recognize your accomplishments! To participate, use hashtag #mesacc2020grad.

From May 26 to June 8, the MCC homepage becomes a tribute to our 2019-2020 grads with celebratory images you or your family and friends post of you on Twitter or Instagram using #mesacc2020grad! Choose an outfit or a setting reflecting your personal accomplishments, interests and style. Graduation regalia is not required, however, those who wish to purchase regalia may do so through our online store. Friends, family, as well as MCC faculty and staff may join in the fanfair by posting congratulatory messages. Notes: Instagram and/or Twitter profiles will need to be public in order for your post(s) to be used. Those without Twitter and Instagram accounts may email images, with the subject line 2019-20 Grad, to

In addition to populating the banner area on the MCC homepage, images and messages from the celebration will be displayed on the MCC Graduation website beyond June 8.

The Graduation website will also feature brief messages from individuals who were scheduled to speak at our spring, in-person ceremony as well as a link to a downloadable Graduation Program containing the names of all MCC summer 2019, fall 2019, and spring 2020 graduates and an option to request a printed version.

This celebration format was selected based on feedback from the many graduates who responded to the poll mentioned in my previous message about this year’s graduation ceremony - thank you to all who participated! The social media and website celebrations are in addition to the in-person ceremony being scheduled for December 2020. I hope you are able to participate in both!

I’m also excited to share that this summer you’ll be mailed a small memento to commemorate your accomplishments and welcome you to the MCC Alumni Association.

Congratulations! Best wishes for continued success!

Onward Thunderbirds!
