Hundreds of students will receive their diplomas from Central Oregon Community College this Saturday. The people assembled will hear local poet and hip hop artist Jason Graham deliver the keynote address. He says his message will be simple. “To address the fact the diploma represents accomplishment and achievement. But there is something internal as well. The drive to put yourself through that kind of work and put your nose to the proverbial grindstone.” Graham is a former COCC student himself and was last year's winner of "Last Band Standing" with his band Mosley Wotta. Nearly 1000 students will be receiving their diplomas on Saturday, but just 420 will be attending the ceremony.
