College students from across our area are ending one chapter of their lives and starting a new one.
Students at East Mississippi Community College in Scooba received their diplomas during a ceremony held there on Saturday. A total of 600 students are graduating from all of EMCC's campuses this weekend. Graduates say they are now focused on making a future for themselves.
"Next thing to do is fine me a good job that pays a lot of money, so I can live well," Don Bell said.
An additional 300 students graduated during the summer and fall semesters in 2012.
