White Mountains Community College honors Burton, 2014 graduates
WMCC awarded about 200 graduates, many in their late teens, but others considerably more mature, with associates degrees in 22 programs and certificates in 30 others.
The tent came in handy, as intermittent drizzle and occasional raindrops fell during the proceedings.
As children played outside the tent, Mike Cryans, a Grafton County commissioner and a longtime friend of the late District 1 Executive Councilor Ray Burton, addressed the attendees.
State Sen. Jeff Woodburn, D-Dalton, delivered the keynote address. A Democrat, Woodburn was deeply indebted to Burton, for whom he was an intern. A former state representative, as well as an entrepreneur, writer, teacher and child advocate, Woodburn commended the WMCC graduates for their accomplishments and told them to keep striving.
