Meridian Community College Graduates 138

A father and daughter are among the 138 MCC students who graduated Friday evening.

Summer 2013 Graduation




Meridian, Miss A packed house watched tonight as Meridian Community College celebrated its Summer Graduation. Diplomas were handed out to 138 students as they walked across the stage at MCC's McCain Theater. Some of these students will further their education, while others will go straight into the workforce. A father and daughter graduated at the same time tonight, and they talked about how they supported each other in the effort. "She was my motivation," said Duane Emerson, of his daughter, Duanika. "So I said I might as well complete the requirements because it's not often that you see a father and daughter graduate, so I took this opportunity to make it happen." "It's exciting," added Duanika. "I never graduated with a parent before, so it's refreshing, I like it."
Students from MCC"s first-ever Paramedic Program also graduated tonight.
