Former Columbia River Maritime Museum director Jerry Ostermiller will be the featured speaker during Clatsop Community College’s 2018 commencement at 7 p.m. Friday, June 15, in Patriot Hall.

CCC will award certificates and degrees to more than 130 students this year, including 113 two-year degrees and 25 one-year certificates.

Ostermiller is a nationally recognized educator who has been featured in documentaries for the History Channel, the Discovery Channel, The National Geographic Society and the Learning Channel.

“As a local 20-year executive director, I have not only hired staff who attended CCC, but I have taken advantage of the facility to invest in some of my employees by paying for classes to enhance their skill sets,” Ostermiller said. “CCC is committed to making a winner out of their students, and the broader community they serve.”

Forty-three students who earned their GED, or general education diploma, received their diplomas during a ceremony Wednesday, June 6, in Columbia Hall.
