Bossier Parish Community College is proud to announce its fall semester graduates. In total, there were 436 graduates who earned 511 credentials. This was the first ceremony that included graduates from all three of BPCC’s campuses – Bossier, Natchitoches and Sabine Valley – since the official realignment of campuses on July 1, 2022.
BPCC Chancellor Dr. Rick Bateman, Jr. presided over the ceremony and the commencement speaker was Mike McConathy, Louisiana's all-time winningest basketball college coach with 682 victories in 39 seasons. McConathy spent the first 16 years of his career at BPCC and the last 23 at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, where he retired in the spring of 2022 after leading the Demons to three NCAA Tournament appearances.
The College is also pleased to announce students named to the Chancellor’s and Dean’s lists for the 2022 fall semester.
