Some 220 stu­dents, staff and guests took part in grad­u­a­tion cer­e­monies staged by the Car­bon­ear cam­pus of the Col­lege of the North At­lantic on June 13.

Among the spe­cial guests on hand were col­lege vice-pres­i­dent Cyril Or­gan (aca­demic and learner ser­vices), cam­pus ad­min­is­tra­tor Gary Myr­den and Coun. Betty Pike of the Town of Car­bon­ear.
