It was hope that was flying high at Minges Colliseum Saturday morning, hope and a lot of confetti.
Saturday was East Carolina University's December Graduation, and nearly 2200 students got their diplomas, Masters degrees and more. The ceremony featured key note speaker Phil Dixon, but earning diplomas and turning tassels took center stage. Something proud parents watched from the bleachers, while the celebration got underway.
Of the 12 schools and colleges at ECU every one of them graduated some students except for the Brody School of Medicine. They hold their graduation in May.
