As a service to its students, Rappahannock Community College awards degrees and certificates after each academic semester, rather than only in the spring. Graduates receive their academic credentials at the time they complete their curricular requirements, and may then march in the Commencement procession the following May, if they wish.
Sixty-two students have taken advantage of this opportunity to graduate at the end of the Summer 2014 semester, earning 76 degrees and certificates among them. They are: Kristy Adkinson, Amber Allison, Katelyn Baldacci, Heather Bankston, Robert Baylor, Odell Bell, Zachary Brandt, Javonti Braxton, Bonnie Bromley, Tiffany Carter, Matthew Compton*³, Devin Cosby, Tiffany Davis, Victoria Davis, Jamie DeLorme§², Mary Dicus, Katelyn Dodson, Steven Enoch, William Farinholt, Michael Gamble, Cassandra Gower*, Kelsey Greenwood², Felicia Hall, Brandon Harrington, Nisa Harris, Brittany Harrison¹, Jamie Herman¹, Emily Hoar, Roger Jones, Nikki Large¹, Lindsay Lawrence, Alexandra Lewis, Amanda Little, Thomas Loftin§³, Elease Loranger*+³, Emmanuel Madera², Benjamin May, Megan McDaniel², Jason McElrath, Vicky McNeilan², Delores Miller, Shekinah Parker, Guadalupe Perez, Shameika Polk, Corryn Rice, Barbara Riddle, Sarah Rose, Valerie Shelton, Kirsten Sheridan, Crystal Smith, Jacob Smith², Leslie Smith, Benzena Street, Laura Sullivan, Rachel Thomas, Terry Tignor, Janice Whitley*³, Stacey Williamson, Camille Willoughby, and Kellen Wise*².
