A big day for hundreds of Blackhawk Technical College Students. 489 are eligible for degrees or certifications as part of graduation ceremonies Saturday. BTC Manager of Marketing and Communications Gary Kohn says members of this class have reason for optimism. Officials at the Wisconsin Technical College system say 25,000 spring graduates throughout the system already have job offers. Kohn says typically nine out of ten BTC students have jobs within six months of graduation. He says this shows employers appreciate how the grads are "job ready." Ceremonies are planned for 11:00 a.m. at the Dream Center, 2460 Milwaukee Road in Beloit. State Senator Tim Cullen of Janesville will serve as the keynote speaker.
