NORWICH, N.Y. — SUNY Morrisville’s Norwich Campus will celebrate its graduates during a drive-thru ceremony on Wednesday, May 27, from 1-2 p.m., in the campus parking lot on Conkey Ave.

Faculty and staff will be in full regalia, joined by bagpipers amid other pomp and circumstance. 

“We are in a unique position to do this, since our students live locally,” said Lindsey Lefevre, director of the Norwich Campus. “After speaking with faculty, we felt it was important to recognize our students and their hard work.”

Approximately 50 students will graduate, 33 of them with a nursing degree. Among them is Jason Gray, a captain with the Norwich Fire Department who stepped in during the COVID-19 pandemic to help emergency personnel in the Norwich area sanitize PPE at the Norwich Campus.

In addition to their diplomas, graduates will receive a yearbook and campus gifts.

Graduates are asked to arrive at the Norwich Campus parking lot at 1 p.m. through the south entrance of the campus parking lot and remain in their vehicles.
