College Commencements Held; WSCC Announces New Center for Public Service

Washington State Community College graduated 404 students on Saturday. WMOA News was there and asked President Bradley Ebersole about the more popular programs these days.  
“Our automotive-diesel program is outstanding, and many of these graduates came from there. Many students today graduated out of the office technologies program, too. Digital technologies is also very important.”  
Ebersole says the Community College is preparing to unveil a new set of programs.  
“Washington State is about to begin a Center for Public Service. We have a police academy, but we’re developing a fire academy, a corrections academy and others. We’ve found that that general area has a lot of interest and we have a staff member who’s leading that effort.
"We’re also trying hard to establish a nice welding program to help meet oil and gas needs, as well as our geosciences program,” Ebersole states. 

State Rep. Andy Thompson (R-Marietta) gave the keynote address at Washington State.  
Meanwhile, Marietta College graduated 340 students at its 176th commencement. The keynote speaker was author and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Carl Bernstein.
