MOUNT VERNON — Grit and determination were celebrated on Friday when the Knox Technical Center, Adult Education at the Knox County Career Center, held a commencement program for the Welding Class of 2016.

Superintendent Kathy Greenich welcomed family and friends who came to applaud the graduates, and told the gathering, “There really is some celebrating that needs to be done. These gentlemen have demonstrated that it is never too late to learn, and it’s never too late to try something new. They have set a good example for others, especially the children in the audience — they saw it through.”
