College of Lake County hosts its 45th annual commencement ceremonies on Saturday, May 17, in the physical education center on the flagship Grayslake campus, 19351 W. Washington St. K. Michael Welch, president and CEO of Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science in North Chicago, will deliver the keynote address. Commencement will consist of two ceremonies, one at 10 a.m. for transfer degrees and the other at 2 p.m. for associate degrees and certificates. The CLC Class of 2014 consists of 2,769 graduates, compared to 1,812 in 2013. CLC officials attribute the jump in degrees being awarded this year to the new "auto award" system, which allows qualifying students to receive their degrees or certificates without having to petition for graduation.
