LANSING Mich. - LCC is preparing to celebrate its 2023 graduates over the next several days. Graduation ceremonies for American Sign Language, Fire Academy, Mid-Michigan Police Academy, nurse and dental hygiene pinning, massage graduation, EMS, the last convocation for the Early College, and the 65th Commencement ceremony are all scheduled throughout the first two weeks of May.
