LA COSECHA 2016
What is La Cosecha?
La Cosecha (The Harvest) is a banquet honoring the achievements of students from all walks of life who have overcome challenging circumstances in order to accomplish their academic goals. The event is intended to recognize graduates in the presence of family, college officials, staff and community guests.
The objective of La Cosecha is to encourage graduates to continue their education towards a bachelor, master, or doctorate degree in hopes that they will return to our community as professionals.
This formal ceremony includes a keynote speaker, student speakers and words from faculty and administration. All honored graduates attending will receive a certificate of recognition and a commemorative sash to signify persistence in attainment of their educational goal. Graduates transferring to a 4-year institution may also apply for a $500 scholarship.
