ROCKVILLE — Cheers filled Hollister Stadium on Wednesday, marking Solano Community College’s 66th graduation commencement. Approximately 290 students dressed in black gowns and black caps earned an associate degree.
For Angelica Grigsby, the day marks the end of six years at SCC. Grigsby, the student speaker, was proud of the six years she spent at SCC, even if community colleges are designed as a two-year endeavor.
She told the crowd that Solano Community College was just what she needed. She had no idea what she wanted to do and did not want to spend the tuition and fees at the four-year level until she was sure.
“That is the beauty of attending a community college first, it allows you to cheaply explore your options,” Grigsby said.
