PATRICK AFB, Fla. -- There were 34 students that received their diplomas from the Community College of the Air Force Wednesday, Nov. 7. Brig. Gen. Anthony Cotton, 45th Space Wing, commander, attended the ceremony and gave his congratulations to the graduates. The guest speaker was retired Chief Master Sgt. Dan Roby, who served as the superintendent of the 367th Recruiting Group, Robins Air Force Base, Ga.

The CCAF is the only college system solely for enlisted members. Each graduate is awarded an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree that is based off of the enlisted member's Air Force Specialty Code (AFSC) and requires 64 semester hours.

Kathleen Farris, 45th Force Support Squadron, gave her congratulations to the entire class of graduates although not all were able to be in attendance.

"Being awarded their CCAF degree takes hard work, my hope is that they use this as a stepping stone and go on to obtain their bachelor's and master's degrees," she said. "They should all be proud of their accomplishment. Good luck to all."
