A record number of graduates attended a ceremony at Southside Virginia Community College on Sunday to receive their GED diploma. Students from ten counties and their families attended this very special event. The crowd attending was so large, there were extra venues set up to watch the event on closed-circuit television around the campus.
Approximately 120 people were recognized for this accomplishment.
The guest speaker for the event was Elizabeth Creamer, interim Director of Education and Workforce Development for Secretary of Education for Governor Terry McAuliffe.
