Graduation was different this year for students at Johnston Community College in Smithfield.
Due to COVID-19 more than 700 graduates from JCC could not turn their tassels in the college auditorium. So graduates decorated their caps and cars for a drive-thru graduation and celebration.
The college president, administration, and faculty awarded degrees and diplomas and handed out swag bags and yard signs to all participants.
Health Sciences students held their drive-thru graduation Monday. College Transfer graduation was this evening (Tuesday). Business and Career Technical Education grads will receive their diplomas on Wednesday.
