La Plume – Keystone College has provided additional details for its 2021 commencement ceremony.
The college recently announced that it will celebrate the Class of 2021 during its 150th commencement exercises on Monday, May 24 at dusk at the Circle Drive-In, Dickson City, as long as it remains safe and feasible to do so. Guest speaker for the event will be Live Nation’s President, Venues/U.S. Concerts Thomas See, a 1991 Keystone graduate.
Additional details include the following schedule of events:
5:30 p.m. Gates at the Circle Drive-In open for guest parking.
6 p.m. Students should proceed to the left side of the left side of the drive-in’s concession stand (as they face the main screen) where they will check-in and receive their name card. Honor cords will be distributed to eligible graduates and all graduates will then return to their cars until notified to make their way to the stage.
7:30 p.m. Academic procession begins.
7:45 p.m. Commencement exercises begin.
Because parking is limited, each graduate will be allowed to admit two vehicles. Graduates will be mailed two tickets/passes to their homes which will be used for entry to the property. Attendants will direct vehicles to their parking spaces and reserving spaces will not be permitted.
The commencement ceremony will be broadcast on the drive-in’s movie screens and also live-streamed on Keystone’s web site, www.keystone.edu/commencement, and on YouTube. Guests in attendance can also tune into 89.3 FM to listen to the audio feed on their vehicle’s radio. At the end of the ceremony, ushers will direct exiting vehicles. All guests are asked to remain on the property until the ceremony concludes.
In accordance with Pennsylvania Department of Health and CDC guidelines, all individuals must wear face masks or face coverings throughout the ceremony. Failure to adhere to these instructions will result in individuals being asked to leave the event. Refreshments will be available for purchase at the concession stand but all food and drink items must be consumed in vehicles.
All plans are subject to change and will depend on public health guidelines and state restrictions as the event approaches. Additional details have been posted on the college’s commencement web site.
