About 1,000 graduates of Georgia’s largest technical college were honored in a ceremony at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre Thursday— about 300 walked in the ceremony. The event recognized those completing their programs of study during the summer term and fall semester.
Relief was the first word that came to mind of Paulding County graduate Justin Simmons. With his degree in Computer Programming, Simmons said the first order of business will be to find a job.
“I’ll be out there with everyone else looking,” Simmons said. “But I’m hopeful.”
State Sen. Chip Rogers was asked to be the commencement speaker at the event. Rogers was first elected in 2002 to the Georgia House of Representatives before being elected to the Georgia State Senate in 2004. Rogers was unanimously chosen as the Georgia Senate Majority Leader in 2009.
