NEKLS GRADUATES -- Seven of the 26 students who graduated through Northeast Kingdom Learning Services' Newport Community Education Center since last July attended a high school and GED graduation ceremony on the evening of Jan. 30: from left, Ricky Gerrow of Newport City, David Cianciolo of Albany, Amy Cianciolo of Albany, Travis Bailey of Swanton, Angelo Cordero of Brighton, Alex Whipple of Brownington and Dustin Lucas of Newport City. The standing-room-only crowd of friends and families had ample opportunity to applaud the graduates for their accomplishment. Instead of introducing a traditional graduation speaker, center manager Markus Vogt invited audience members to share their stories, wishes and emotions with the graduates and their friends and families. After the diplomas had been presented, the graduates expressed their emotions and gratitude for support they had received from friends over the course of their GED or High School Completion studies. Each year, NEKLS's five community education centers in Newport, St. Johnsbury, Canaan, Hardwick and Island Pond graduate a total of about 120 students.
