NMC Grads Receive First Bachelor’s Degrees

Northwestern Michigan College is the first community college in the state to award bachelor's degrees.

Today, two young men made history as they graduated with a bachelor's in maritime technology.

Nathaniel Lammers and Matthew O'Donnell were honored in a small commencement ceremony.

Both say it wasn't an easy accomplishment, but they are excited to have blazed the trail.

The next step is to enter the workforce for both, likely working on a ship.
