Approximately 400 smiling graduates participated in commencement exercises at County College of Morris in Randolph on May 28.

The ceremony culminated the college’s 40th anniversary year. Since CCM opened its doors in 1968, 41,231 students have earned degrees or certificates, with 1,101 students receiving their degrees in the 2008 – 2009 academic year.

Holding to tradition, CCM President Edward J Yaw gave the keynote address, using the opportunity to highlight several outstanding students. Freeholder Director Gene F. Feyl also addressed the graduates, congratulating them for achieving what he said was a “a milestone” in their lives.

“You have met all of the challenges that a college education threw your way,” Feyl said. “You should be very proud of what you have accomplished.”

Some of the most popular programs CCM students received degrees in are: Humanities Social Science (Liberal Arts), Business Administration, Nursing, Criminal Justice, Biology and Exercise Science.
