Over one hundred Meridian Community College students Saturday took to the stage at the Temple Theater in Meridian for the 2009 MCC Summer Commencement Ceremony.
Students graduated from several programs including L.P.N and cosmetology classes. Graduates say their time at the school will help them with their future plans.
"It prepared me to go out there and have a better job and better pay and I don't have to work fast food restaurants any more, things like that," said Amy Price.
"It prepared me for the workplace. I was able to get a job as soon as I finished my clinicals, which was last week and I really think I'm prepared," said Dena McLain.
