Brazosport College 2021 graduate Elena Ruiz celebrates during a Commencement Car Parade on May 7 on the campus of Brazosport College. On May 8, Ruiz was one of approximately 550 graduates featured in the College’s virtual Commencement ceremony.

Brazosport College recently celebrated its 2021 graduates with two days of events that included an in-person car parade followed by the airing of this year’s Virtual Commencement Ceremony a day later.

The festivities began with an on-campus celebratory car parade on Friday, May 7, with BC faculty and staff joining together to congratulate participating graduates.

On Saturday, May 8, Brazosport College held its virtual Commencement Ceremony for the class of 2021. Although a majority of graduates earned associate degrees, 72 students completed Bachelor of Applied Technology degrees from BC’s Industrial Management and Health Services Management programs.

Another highlight of the ceremony was the Commencement Address by BC graduate and 2020-21 Distinguished Alumnus James Cesarini.

Cesarini, who holds three degrees from BC, is the Managing Partner at Pro-Surve Technical Services, ProSource Radiography Services and Partner at ProForce Industrial. He began his college career at Brazosport College, obtaining an Associate of Applied Science in Engineering Graphics, before heading to Texas A&M where he earned Bachelor of Sciences in both Engineering Technology and Mechanical Engineering. Later, he earned additional degrees from BC in both Mathematics and Liberal Arts.

Being aired online, members of the 2021 class were able to share the experience with friends, families and BC Gators everywhere. It was also an interactive ceremony, with students receiving many congratulatory messages on Twitter and Instagram.

The Commencement can be viewed at Brazosport.edu/commencement. Graduates are also welcome to download the entire virtual commencement video.
