It was a beautiful day in Portland and thousands of people showed up to Memorial Coliseum on June 14 to show their support for almost 1,000 graduates walking to the stage to get their degrees or certificates. A total of 4,900 degrees, certificates and awards were handed out at the 51st Portland Community College Commencement Ceremony. Below are some images from the proceedings, which saw a crowd that nearly filled up the coliseum. Don’t forget to click on any photo to enlarge it and toggle through the gallery!
