    I am honored and delighted to extend my heartfelt congratulations to you on earning your GED credential or your Adult High School Diploma. You worked hard to reach this milestone, and you are to be applauded for your perseverance. Many of life’s most satisfying successes are the result of commitment and diligence. Your dedication to completing your GED / Diploma is commendable.

    To celebrate this accomplishment, MHCC invites you to participate in the GED / AHSD Graduation ceremony on Friday, June 15, 2018.

On the day of the ceremony, all graduates should report to the Yoshida Event Center (formerly known as the MHCC Gymnasium) room PE 114 by 6:15 p.m. The ceremony will begin promptly at 7 p.m.
