Those 452 students earned 465 degrees and certificates.

Two commencement programs were held, one in the morning, the other in the afternoon.

Although there were a few seats for the public that were not used during the morning program, the afternoon session was standing room only at Ketcham Community Center.

There were around 50 more graduates at the afternoon session than during the morning.

Missouri Commissioner of Higher Education David Russell was the featured speaker during the morning commencement program.

The morning program was for graduates in areas other than allied health.

The afternoon graduation focused on allied health areas. The featured speaker was Don Sipes, Vice President of Regional Services for St. Luke's Health System, and Chief Executive for St. Luke's North Hospital at Smithville. Sipes is a former Trenton resident and an alumnus of what's now North Central Missouri College.

North Central Missouri College President Neal Nuttall said North Central had students from 15 of the 16 counties in its Service region. The greatest concentration was from
Grundy County at 16 percent, followed by Livingston at 12 percent, and Harrison and Nodaway Counties at six percent each.

North Central Missouri's service region covers more territory than any other community college in the state. Although ninety-five (95) percent of North Central's students were from Missouri, it had international students from eight other countries.

During the morning commencement, Retiring Government and Criminal Justice Instructor Eddie Koenig was presented a plaque as North Central's latest emeriti.
