BCON Baccalaureate Ceremony, Save The Date May 14, 2024, 6 pm Thomas & Mack
Dear Community Sponsor,
The Black Community Organizations Network (BCON) will be celebrating its 46th Annual Baccalaureate Ceremony for students of African American heritage graduating in Southern Nevada. The ceremony will be held this spring in conjuction with local high school commencement ceremonies, and we are asking for your support to ensure our continued success!.
The mission of BCON is to bridge and unify community support in celebrating the successes and accomplishments for high school students of African American heritage. Every year, a committee of community volunteers plan the presentation of the annual baccalaureate ceremony. The foundation for our baccalaureate ceremony comes from community pride and celebratory traditions that are deeply rooted within the Las Vegas, African American community. The graduation rate for African American students in Clark County continues to increase, but there is much work to do to improve achievement gaps. We believe that students who have reached this milestone in education should be publicly recognized and supported by the entire community.
BCON has recognized thousands of student over the years and has provided hundreds of students with scholarships and resources to foster their post-secondary academic pursuit. The upcoming ceremony promises to be an exciting one for us. We would be honored to have your organization's support as a sponsor. As a leader in the community, your involvement expresses your commitment to education and the success of Nevada graduates.
