LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – It was a day to remember for 30 Harrison College students as they walked across the stage in the Long Center during a commencement ceremony Saturday afternoon.

College president Al Parker says sixty students graduated in all, but only half were able to attend the ceremony. Retired NASA astronaut and Air Force Col. Mark Brown gave the commencement address. He said the students have worked hard to earn their respective degrees.

“These are kids that have really made an effort to overcome some challenges to further their own education and further their lives,” Brown said.

With their diplomas, students will now have the opportunity to go places and do things they may have never thought possible, said Brown.
