LATI Graduation

Lake Area Technical Institute’s 48th Annual Spring Graduation will take place Friday, May 8, 2015, at 4:00 p.m. at the Watertown Civic Arena. We are honored to welcome President Barack Obama as our commencement speaker.

The ceremony will be an invite-only ticket event with the focus on seating for graduates and their limited number of guests. The tickets will be at no cost. We are waiting for the logistic guidance from the Secret Service. Graduating students should check their Lake Area Tech email regarding their ticket information.

As in the past, the event will be video streamed through our website. Staff is also working on the possibility of additional sites on campus and in the Watertown community for live video streaming of the ceremony. More details will be announced regarding tickets and video streaming sites on our website and social media as they become available.

Keep in mind that the focus of the ceremony is celebrating the achievement of the graduates. We are truly honored to welcome the President of the United States to our celebration.

A complimentary, light evening meal will be served on the campus of Lake Area Tech for you and your guests immediately following the ceremony.
