Olds College graduates had their shining moment last weekend as they were awarded their diplomas, degrees and certificates.

For 716 students, it was a culmination of work ranging from one semester to four years, or even longer.

On Saturday, the 97th graduating class of the college gathered, gowned, greeted and graduated at the Ralph Klein Centre on the campus.

Honourary degrees were bestowed upon five individuals during the ceremony.

Erma and Roy Wilson were honoured as alumni with honourary degrees.

Al Neurater received an honourary degree as an industry partner.

Bill Quinney got an honourary degree for his volunteerism and advocacy of the college.

And W. Brett Wilson addressed the class and their guests from Turkey while accepting his honourary degree as a champion of Olds College.

The college is celebrating its centennial anniversary this year. Olds was founded in 1913 after the Alberta government established three demonstration farms. The other two were in Vermilion and Fairview.
