Glendale Career College (GCC) To Recognize New Graduates at Its
Spring Commencement Ceremony

ACCSC Executive Director Dr. Michale McComis Will Serve as Event’s Keynote Speaker

GLENDALE, Calif.—Sunday, April 7 will mark the culmination of many months of rigorous career training for 110 Glendale Career College (GCC) graduates as they join more than 300 North-West College (NWC) graduates at the Spring Commencement Ceremony. Family, friends and Team Members will gather at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium to celebrate this significant event and honor these individuals’ remarkable educational achievements. Dr. Michale McComis, Executive Director of the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), will address the graduates—encouraging them to continue to pursue their goals as they step into a brighter future.

“I am especially looking forward to this Commencement with Dr. Michale McComis giving the keynote address,” shared NWC President Mitchell Fuerst. “ACCSC is one of our institutional accreditors and we are deeply grateful to have Dr. McComis, who’s flying across the country to speak to and shake the hands of more than 400 new health care professionals!”

In his role as the Executive Director of ACCSC, Dr. McComis has spent the last 25 years working to help make schools and opportunities for students better through the accreditation process. His efforts are focused on identifying educational best practices, developing leadership in schools, and driving institutional improvement, student achievement, and student-centered approaches to teaching and learning.

“We are excited to come together for Commencement—to mark this milestone moment for our graduates and all of those who have cheered them on every step of the way,” Fuerst explained. “There is nothing better than watching our graduates walk across the stage, knowing that each cap and gown represents a life changed by the quality career training we provide here at the College.”

Friends and family members unable to attend Commencement can still take part by watching the full ceremony live on April 7th on the Glendale Career College Facebook page at glendalecareer/.
