A TikTok celebrity and New York Times bestselling author is to be the speaker at the Bermuda College’s commencement ceremony tomorrow.

Dylan Hollis shot to fame with his quaint cooking videos recreating old recipes and his cookery book Baking Yesteryear.

The baker, who is a former student of Warwick Academy, has 10 million followers and his online posts have garnered 258 million likes.

Mr Hollis will be joined on the podium by Jon Hendrickson, a graduate of the college.

A spokeswoman for the Bermuda College said that 98 students would receive associate degrees, diplomas or certificates; 62 per cent of the class of 2024 will be graduating with honours and GPA [grade point average] merit or distinction recognition.

The Associate of Arts, Business Administration, programme produced 19 graduates, dominating the associate degree programme offerings.

Seven graduates are dual-enrolment students, who will be awarded associate degrees or certificates before they receive their high-school graduation certificates next month.

Nine students are members of international honour society Phi Theta Kappa after they maintained a minimum GPA of 3.5.

In addition, four students will graduate from the Mount Saint Vincent Bachelor in Business Administration programme.

Branwen Smith-King, the college’s interim president, said: “As we are mere months away from the launch of our 50th anniversary celebrations, I am confident that this distinguished class of 2024 will continue to carry on the legacy of the Bermuda College ‘student success’ experience in bold and pioneering ways, whether in the local marketplace, in entrepreneurial initiatives or in higher education excellence, overseas.

“I am so very proud of them all and wish them continued success.”

The ceremony will be live streamed on CITV from at 2.30pm.
