It was nothing but pomp and circumstance for the 400-plus students graduating at the Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell 55th Commencement Convocation, Friday evening at the Wool Bowl.
Under blue skies between the 30-yard lines, some 300 ENMU-R students moved the tassels on their graduation caps from the right to the left side, as is tradition, to symbolize the transition from candidate to graduate.
Also participating in the ceremony were 13 students from ENMU in Portales, who received bachelorâ€™s degrees and nine who received masterâ€™s degrees; 35 students from New Mexico Highlands University, who earned masterâ€™s degrees in social work; and about 16 cadets from the New Mexico Youth ChalleNGe Academy, who received certificates of employability.
