Jostens has introduced free online “Virtual Commencement Centers” to help all high schools and colleges celebrate Class of 2020 graduates and preserve their schools’ graduation traditions despite the COVID-19 crisis. Jostens Virtual Commencement Centers have been designed for the high school and college markets, and deliver exclusive digital tools to help school leaders plan and execute a graduation ceremony on-line, in the event traditional commencement events are canceled due to COVID-19, the company said. Both high school and college Virtual Commencement Centers will deliver free digital tools to help school leaders plan and execute a graduation commencement on-line, including Pomp & Circumstance audio files, digital commencement speeches from notable personalities, student slide templates and additional digital connection tools for school administrators.
“At Jostens we believe every graduate deserves to be celebrated, especially this year,” said John Bibeault, Vice President and General Manager of Jostens Scholastic division. “We work with principals all over the country who are managing school safety and closures related to COVID-19, and they’re looking for resources to help plan and execute a commencement ceremony virtually if need be. The tools we’ve developed, and are offering at no cost to them, will help them do that in a safe, celebratory way.”
“The college commencement ceremony is meaningful for students, alumni, and also to the school, as it represents tradition,” said Chris Poitras, Vice President and General Manager of Jostens College Division. “Our Virtual Commencement Center is something college administrators and commencement directors are looking for, to celebrate their graduates and honor their school traditions.”
Access to Jostens high school and college Virtual Commencement Centers is available through Jostens high school and college sales representatives.
