MASON CITY – The 2016 High School Equivalency Diploma graduation ceremony was held at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, June 1 in the Activity Center on the North Iowa Area Community College campus.

Six student speakers shared their journeys with the guests, and the NIACC Foundation also awarded NIACC scholarships to top-scoring graduates. A reception for graduates, families, friends, and supporters was held in the Activity Center immediately following the ceremony.

HSED (formerly GED®) graduates must successfully complete the battery of five tests on the HiSET™ exam to obtain their high school equivalency diploma from the Iowa Department of Education. The program helps people from a variety of age groups and backgrounds reach this crucial goal.

Fifty-nine graduates from a number of communities in North Iowa were recognized at the ceremony (several chose not to have their names published).

    Great! Shows that some students and parents are responsible Americans – how about the 200 basket weavers that will be on welfare in 5 years.
