MPC celebrates "Rites of Passage" with 2016 Graduates
Each year, the African American Faculty & Staff celebrate the special accomplishments of our Graduates and Transfers at our annual Rites of Passage Ceremony. The Rites of Passage is a ritual event that marks a person's transition from one stage of life to another.
This year's 21st Annual “Rites of Passage” Kente Celebration was held on Friday, June 3rd, 2016 at Monterey Peninsula College. MPC welcomed local talent Pat Casion as this year's guest speaker. Her heartfelt words of encouragement and motivation provided inspiration to this year's graduates and the audience members alike.
*This special event is sponsored by the Black Student Union, African American Faculty & Staff and EOPS department.
