Child care center grads honored

A recent ceremony was held for 11 graduates of the Vance-Granville community College Child Care Center.

As they do each year, teachers asked the graduates what they want to be when they grow up, and Denise Gill, the day care center manager, shared the children’s goals and aspirations with the audience at the ceremony. Among the group now heading to kindergarten were future hairdressers, clothing designers, princesses, ballerinas, doctors, a dentist, police officers, firefighters, a paleontologist and a fashionista.

During the program, the children recited the Pledge of Allegiance and sang “My Country, ’Tis of Thee,” “Sunshine Medley” and “Good-bye.”

Medlin and Hunter offered remarks on behalf of the class.

Poems were recited by Monroe, Rowan, Waters, Overby, Stainback, Beal and Dunston.

Thompson gave the invocation, and Willey gave the benediction.

Deborah Harris, lead teacher for the class, assisted Gill in presenting diplomas to the students.

Aiden Duke served as the marshal.
