Thousands of friends and family gathered to see over 600 graduates participate in the Columbia Basin College Commencement Ceremony. It was the largest graduation in CBC history. The college awarded more than 1,300 diplomas.
Three graduates that were amongst those celebrating (pictured above) were John Myers, Talitha McCall, and Lisa Trescott.
John Richard Myers from Zilah, graduated with Honors last night. During his time at CBC he served as a member of the ASCBC Student Leaders acting on the Service & Activities Board. John also participated in the music department as a member of the Concert, Chamber, and Jazz choir. Myers will be transferring to Eastern Washington University and hopes to one day be a Teacher.
