Graduates Swells at BCCC
Saturday’s annual GED graduation was a standing-room-only
affair at the P.E. Center as 146 graduates traversed the stage to receive
their GED certifications and refocus their sights on a changing world. The
number of graduates was 22 percent higher than last year.
Among the day’s highlights
was 77-year-old graduate Evangeline Wilson, who Dr. Anderson called
out by name out as an inspiration to the rest of the class. Evangeline
never faltered in her pursuit of a high school diploma. Although

her son, Vernon Matthews.
