Luna Community College students crossed the stage Saturday morning to celebrate their 2008 commencement.
About 700 audience members cheered on the 141 graduates who walked the line, with 73 members of the class graduating in absentia.
The Rev. John C. Brasher of Our Lady of Sorrows gave the invocation.
“We ask health for the graduateseeso that they themselves can always serve you faithfully in their chosen fields,” Brasher said. “May they prosper with the work of their hands all the days of their lives.”
