HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – It was a memorable day for nearly 1,100 students who graduated Holyoke Community College Saturday.
Students and their families and friends packed the MassMutual Center in Springfield today for HCC’s 67th Commencement. After finishing their two year Associates degree, several students told 22News they have plans to attend a four year college or university.
Loucie St. Lot told 22News, “I got accepted at Elms so I’ll be starting in August which is very exciting and nerve-racking. It’s hard but hard work pays off and everything is networking. You have to know somebody who knows somebody.”
Other students told 22News they plan to head directly into the workforce.
