Salisbury, MD (May 13, 2009) - MACC Executive Director Clay Whitlow provided the commencement address at Wor-Wic Community College's 32nd graduation ceremony for the Class of 2009 at the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center.

Whitlow praised the new graduates saying, "Sometimes we compare college with the 'real world' as in now that you have finished college you have to go out into the 'real world.'  You are already in the real world.  Many of you have had to balance family responsibilities, work, and other commitments while pursuing your goal of higher education.  You stuck with it, with help from family and friends, you put in the time and effort to be successful and we are here to celebrate your accomplishments this evening. I salute each and every one of you."
