Before eating pizza and wings and watching the big game, some local airmen were part of a graduation ceremony at Key Field.
Newscenter 11 was there as local airmen were recognized for having completed a degree with the Community College of the Air Force. Graduates are now equipped with better job skills, making them even more valuable to the Air Force and to the community as a whole.
"It's a wonderful, wonderful feeling," said MSgt Ahsaki Games. "Another goal accomplished and something I can share, an accomplishment I can share with my family."
"Every civilian world has a degree for you to get a job, and basically this is our degree for the military," said MSgt Richard Cavanaugh. "It combines technical credits that we do here in the military."
Meridian Community College President Dr. Scott Elliot was Sunday's guest speaker.
