Congratulations Citrus College Class of 2020, and welcome to your commemorative website!
You did it! You have earned your associate degree and embarked on the next stage of your academic or professional life. The entire Citrus College community is excited to finally recognize your accomplishments. While it may not be the in-person celebration we were hoping for, this online tribute allows us to applaud your hard work in a way that ensures the health and safety of you and your loved ones.
By now, you should have received your diploma cover, tassel and "Class of 2020" commemorative pin. Our hope is that you will display these with great pride. After all, they were hard earned. You conquered challenges, embraced opportunities and demonstrated a resilience that deserves recognition. With determination and focus, you earned your college degree. Now, it's time to celebrate!
Although this online tribute is a departure from tradition, it provides several unique opportunities. First, you can share this website and its contents with those family members and friends who supported you throughout your academic journey. Another benefit is that this website has reconnected you with your alma mater. In the months and years ahead, we hope you maintain this connection. Please stay in touch and share your journey with us.
When you earned your degree in June, you joined a proud tradition of successful graduates. As you continue to learn, grow and achieve your goals, never forget that Citrus College is rooting for you. We hope that you will continue to build upon your knowledge and actively contribute to society. After all, the world needs you now more than ever.
On behalf of the Citrus Community College District Board of Trustees and the faculty and staff of Citrus College, I offer my most sincere congratulations!
Stay healthy and safe! Go Owls!
