Anthony (Tony) Fernandez, State Representative Jeff Nesset, and Dean of Community Programs Kathy Martin will provide greetings. Tom Safley from the Lewiston Rotary Club will present $1,000 scholarships to two exceptional GED graduates.
Two students, Sergio Leon and Edwin Williams, will share in giving the commencement address. Callahan, will present the Class of 2011 for the conferring of certificates by President Fernandez.
