Students, families, and friends who attended OCC’s 51st Commencement ceremony were treated to a new exhibit inside the SRC Arena and Events Center. The accomplishments of 15 graduating students were highlighted in vibrant 30 inch by 40 inch posters positioned around the upper ring of the arena. From Nancy Stevens who earned her Onondaga degree 33 years after graduating from West Point, to Commencement speaker Melinda Agnew who worked tirelessly while raising three daughters as a single parent, it was a diverse and outstanding group of graduates. View each of their commencement posters.
