Registrar Carleen Place proceeded to confer the Associate Degrees, Diplomas, and Certificates, with Dr. Trescot Wilson and Necheeka Trott presenting.

The presentation of Bachelor Degrees was done by Tawana Flood, Direct of the Division of Professional and Career Education, and Dr. Sandi Findlay-Thompson, Associate Professor, Department of Business and Tourism at Mouth Saint Vincent University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
