Graduates in the 72nd commencement exercise at Solano Community College received their degrees and certificates, Thursday, in front of a standing-room-only crowd at “Doc” Hollister Stadium.
Family and friends battled gusty winds and cool temperatures to cheer on the Class of 2018, which also included summer 2017 graduates.
The thick program prompted one attendee to inquire, “They are giving all these people degrees?”
There was a last-minute scramble as graduates outnumbered the seats on the field. Just as the ceremony began, one balloon managed to escape from the stands and float over the Class of 2018.
