Friends and family packed into the Evangel Temple to celebrate the graduates. Students were awarded certificates and degrees from over 30 departments.

Several graduates say they haven't thought about jobs just yet, but they're really excited for what's next.

"We are excited to be graduating from MCC, and we can't wait to see what the future holds," said MCC graduate Jada Henderson.

I'm really excited, because I know all the hard work paid off, and I'm just happy to be here and to have pushed through and made it," said MCC graduate Hayleigh Rodgers. "I'm so excited to see what's next. I'm not sure really what I'm going to do next, but I'm ready to see what God has laid out for me."

WTOK weekend reporter Nicholas Brooks and production assistant Nickie Farmer are among the graduates.
