Pellissippi State offers two Commencement ceremonies 

Two lines of May 2022 grads are lined up on Hardin Valley Campus and ready to walk at Commencement.
These spring 2022 graduates were ready to walk across the stage at Pellissippi State’s Commencement ceremonies last May. Our spring 2023 graduates have the same opportunity this Friday and Saturday.

Pellissippi State Community College will celebrate its 665 spring 2023 graduates in two Commencement ceremonies this week. 

Ceremonies will be held at 4 p.m. Friday, May 5, and 10 a.m. Saturday, May 6, both in the Hardin Valley Campus Courtyard, 10915 Hardin Valley Road, Knoxville.  

Pellissippi State does not have an indoor venue that is capable of seating all graduates and guests, but an inclement weather plan is available on the college’s website at  

Spring 2023 graduates Casey Looper, Associate of Science in Communication Studies, and Reilly Holloman, Associate of Applied Science in Business Technology, will serve as Commencement speakers for their peers, while Pellissippi State alumni Tyler Boldin, Class of 2009, and Melissa Spangler, Class of 2012, will give closing remarks. 

Both Commencement ceremonies will be livestreamed on the college’s YouTube channel to allow family and friends unable to attend in person an opportunity to celebrate with graduates. 

Guests in need of accommodations should reach out in advance of the ceremonies to or call 865.694.6411 for assistance.
