In addition to speakers representing the community; the District; and LACC students, staff and faculty; there were performances by LACC dance students, a community organization, and an LACC vocalist. Following the ceremony was an outdoor reception with light refreshments and selections played by LACC guitar students. Nearly 300 guests were in attendance.
