    The colleges and universities of Fort Leavenworth’s Army Education Center hosted their annual combined college graduation ceremony June 12 in the Lewis and Clark Center’s Eisenhower Auditorium.
    The ceremony conferred graduating students’ degrees from four different schools in both the undergraduate and graduate categories. The degrees included associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees awarded by Barton Community College, Upper Iowa University, Central Michigan University and Webster University.
    The welcoming speaker for the ceremony was Garrison Commander Col. Harry D. Hung. The commencement speaker was former State Representative Debbie Deere, and the master of ceremonies was Brandon Johannes, president and CEO of the Leavenworth and Lansing Area Chamber of Commerce.
    The combined college graduation ceremony coincides with the Command and General Staff Officer Course graduation June 14. The colleges work together to execute this celebration culminating in a grand ceremony for Fort Leavenworth students, service members, their dependents and Army civilian employees.
    The schools at the Fort Leavenworth Army Education Center currently offer 28 different degree or certificate opportunities. The education institutions of the Army Education Center tailor their education services to accommodate the rigorous demands and professional duties incurred by soldiers. Today, a college degree is necessary for soldiers and civilians to be competitive for promotion, as well as prepare them for their personal and professional endeavors.
