Averett University students entered the gymnasium to the sound of “Pomp and Circumstance” and roaring applause Saturday for their college graduation. The stands were packed with parents and close friends who had come to see the 177 students who opted to attend to officially receive their degrees. The graduates’ ages ranged from 20 to 67, 18 being veterans and four international students. A total of 224 people graduated this spring, but 177 chose to attend the ceremony.
