Kemptville College hosted its final convocation ceremonies on Friday morning. Twenty-eight graduates along with a handful of remaining staff and administrators were led into the theatre at Parish Hall with the traditional bagpipe escort.
There were mixed emotions at the event as it is the end of an almost 100-year-institution but the start of a new beginning for the graduates.
The University of Guelph had received funding from the province to allow students to complete their apprenticeship programs for Agricultural & Heavy Equipment Technician and Horticultural Technician on Kemptville Campus after most other programs ended.
In September, two new French elementary schools will open on the site.
