There are 188 graduating students at Ameritech College. And, school administrators are making sure graduation is memorable, despite the current situation.

William Jones, a Member of the Board of Directors and a graduate of Ameritech himself, says even though they can't have a traditional ceremony, they are hand-delivering kits with caps, gowns and a diploma to say congratulations.

Shaylee Butterfield is one of those grads who got her kit and Budah was there!

Ameritech is a healthcare college and Jones says they're happy to be in a position to assist the country and the state in this time of need.

Their graduates are employed at about 40 different institutions from Logan to St. George with about 95 percent of graduates staying in Utah to work. Many of them have been recognized for personal community service during the pandemic.
