Co-Lin graduates celebrate, look ahead

 

NATCHEZ — Friday night was the end of one journey and the beginning of another adventure for 160 graduates of the Natchez campus of Copiah-Lincoln Community College.

Co-Lin Hall of Fame member Geovani Lara told the crowd of family, friends and Co-Lin staff that Friday’s spring commencement is a special moment for the class of 2019.

“Everyone has their moment, and this is our moment,” Lara said. “Despite the various struggles students face, we have made it to the finish line.”

Lara said even though graduation felt like an ending, the day was only a beginning.

“Our journey is far from over,” Lara said. “Regardless of the paths we choose, we should be grateful for Co-Lin.”

“Co-Lin really is the place to be, and I will miss it,” Lara later said.

President Jane Hulon, Ph.D., welcomed the graduates to Co-Lin’s “long and distinguished history.”

Marking the end of her first year as the school’s eighth president, Hulon said this year’s graduation was a special time for her and the graduating class.

“Your graduation today is a positive reflection of you, your family and our college. We are so proud of you,” Hulon said.
