Class of 2018 Graduates with Honors, Scholarships
Contra Costa College is thrilled to congratulate the class of 2018!
Over 780 CCC students graduated with more than 1,500 degrees and certificates this year. At its annual commencement ceremony last week, 350 new grads walked away wiht over $320,000 in scholarships.
“This was both a large graduating class and a large participating group,” said Dean of Students Dennis Franco. “It was awesome to see so many students walking the stage, and to see their families and friends participating in the festivities.”
Throughout the event, CCC profiled students on Instagram.
These grads are Rayah Khaled Alammari, Dema Aldabbas, Balmeen Kaur and Taimai Faisal. They all met as tutors in the Skill Center… except Taimia. And they all just earned degrees in psychology… except Balmeen. And they were all members of the Muslim Students Association. (All four of them.) In the fall, they’ll be headed to Berkeley, Davis, Davis and SF State, respectively. #ContraCostaCollege #congrats #graduation
