UPDATE: WATCH: Rivermont Collegiate’s 133rd Commencement Ceremony

EARLIER UPDATE: After careful consideration and a plan to strictly follow social distancing guidelines, Rivermont Collegiate in Bettendorf announced they are holding their 133rd Commencement exercises in person this Saturday, May 30.

“We could not let our seniors go without a proper send-off,” said the private college preparatory school’s Marketing Manager Jill Weitzel.

Families of graduates will be present during the outdoor ceremony, which is scheduled to take place 11 a.m. in the circle in front of Rivermont Collegiate’s campus located at 1821 Sunset Drive, also known as the Bettendorf Mansion.

Doug Cropper, CEO and President of Genesis Healthcare, will speak during the ceremony.

Weitzel says small class sizes are a “hallmark of the Rivermont experience” and that, during this time of social distancing in particular, “small class sizes are an even bigger advantage.”

Rivermont Collegiate invites the rest of the school’s community to join them on Facebook, where the ceremony will be livestreamed and posted for future viewing.
