Bevill State looking for ways to honor graduates

Bevill State Community College is still finding ways to honor its graduates.

In a letter released by Bevill State President Dr. Kim Ennis on Friday, discussions are still being held to consider “alternatives for graduation.”

In addition, the college is in the process of notifying students who are recipients of academic, leadership and service awards.

Award recipients will also be honored online at the end of this week.

“Successful completion of a student’s program of study is a monumental accomplishment,” Ennis said. “On behalf of the administration, faculty, and staff of Bevill State, we congratulate you on your graduation.”

Bevill State is in the process of advanced registration for the summer semester and college employees are assisting those who wish to study during the fall semester. A new “live chat” feature on the college’s website has assisted students during the admissions process.

Starting May 18, full-time Bevill State employees who haven’t been able to work during the COVID-19 pandemic will begin transitioning back to on-campus work.

 “As we prepare for a transition back to an on-campus work environment, Bevill State will continue to follow state guidelines and protocols. Our plan is to allow for a gradual transition while keeping the health and safety of our faculty, staff, and students at the forefront,” Ennis said. “All employees working on campus must follow applicable protocols, including frequent hand washing and maintaining appropriate social distancing. We will release official COVID-19 Bevill State Health and Safety Guidelines to employees prior to May 18, 2020.”

Ennis further stated that computer labs, learning success centers, testing offices, and libraries will still be closed to the public until otherwise stated.

 “I continue to be impressed with the ingenuity and resolve of everyone working toward ensuring that the business of education continues during this time,” Ennis said.
