RCC Student Government Association President and 2019 graduate Toni Formato speaks to her classmates at the May 9 Curriculum Graduation in Greensboro.

ASHEBORO (May 17, 2019)

Toni Formato looked out at a sea of blue caps and gowns Wednesday and asked her classmates to raise their hands if they had ever been told they couldn’t do something. The sea turned into an ocean of raised arms and nodding heads.


“The whole reason you are sitting here today is you never gave up,” she said.


The surroundings may have been new, but the familiar cheers, smiles and tears — and, of course, pomp and circumstance — were ever-present as close to 300 Randolph Community College graduates crossed the stage to receive their degrees, diplomas, or certificates Wednesday, May 8, at the Fieldhouse at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex. Family members and friends filled the venue while others watched the ceremony via live video feed. All witnessed the blue mortar boards — some bedazzled with phrases like “Bad to the Bone,” “My Turn to Teach,” “Rad Grad,” and “Pray Slay” and others decorated with flowers and Pantone swatches.

Determination pays off for RCC’s 2019 College and Career Readiness graduates

Amoin Kouame speaks at the May 9 College and Career Readiness Graduation in the R. Alton Cox Learning Center at Randolph Community College.

ASHEBORO (May 16, 2019)

Twenty students participated in the May 9 College and Career Readiness ceremony out of 29 High School Equivalency Diploma graduates and six Adult High School Diploma graduates who were eligible at the R. Alton Cox Learning Resources Center auditorium at Randolph Community College.


Two of the graduates spoke — Claymore Jones and Amoin Kouame — with Adult Basic Education Instructor Tommy Maness reading a letter from a graduate Tre’Shaun Stancil.

Stancil said he found high school difficult and started working full time, attending school less and less until he stopped.

“Looking back a few years later, I realized that decision was a big mistake and it discouraged me,” he said. “Eventually, I got married and had kids and then it really started to bother me. I was telling my kids to go to school, and get good grades so they could graduate and go to college, but I did not even have my diploma.”

Stancil learned about the High School Equivalency classes through RCC and enrolled.

“Mr. (Jerry) Barnes and Mr. (Pete) Abbott have been so helpful in assisting me with achieving my lifelong goal of obtaining my diploma,” he said. “If not for these two instructors, I do not know if I would have finished my education. They were so encouraging and willing to go the extra mile for all their students.”

Jones echoed Stancil’s message, thanking Barnes and Abbott.
