Calhoun graduation set for 6 p.m. today

— Calhoun Community College will conduct its 2013 graduation ceremonies at 6 p.m. today. 

The event will take place on the lawn in front of the Math/Science/Administration (MSA) building on the Decatur campus. In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will move to the Kelley Gymnasium, with televised overflow inside the MSA building. If the ceremony is relocated to the gym, doors will open one hour prior to the event.

According to the Calhoun Admissions Office, over 1800 students have qualified for graduation this year.  Of that number, close to 450 students plan to participate in this year’s ceremony.  A unique feature added to the ceremony several years ago will continue this year – the graduation procession will be led by bagpiper Ryan Morrison.

Speaker for this year's graduation service is Representative Mac McCutcheon. McCutcheon was elected to the Alabama House of Representatives in 2006 and was unopposed in 2010. A native of Madison County currently residing in Monrovia, he serves the communities of Madison City, Capshaw, Monrovia, Huntsville City, and East Limestone.
