Moraine Valley Community College Student Newspaper June 24, 2011 Volume 43, Issue 17 Moraine graduates class of 2011 By Connor Reynolds News Editor The graduating class of 2011 gathered in the gym on May 20 for the ceremony that would, for most, mark the end of their experience at Moraine as a student. Starting at 7 pm the gym was covered in a sea of dark green caps and gowns as the soon-to-be graduates took their seats. Gold, silver and white cords adorned many of the graduates honoring their high GPA’s. By 9 pm the now- graduates walked out of the building as they began the next step of their lives. Also honored were the members of the Phi Theta Kappa who were recognized with with their own unique honor stole and tassel.

Moraine Valley seems to be taking care of all things in need of being revamped and parking lots aren’t the only thing.
