2013 CCAF graduates recognized

Published: 04:18PM May 7th, 2013

More than 200 Airmen received associate degrees in a Community College of the Air Force graduation ceremony, May 3, at McChord Field Theater on Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

The CCAF originated in the early 1970s to provide academic accreditation to Airmen after completing Air Force formal training, recognizing the need to enhance the skills of the enlisted force as technicians and leaders. On Nov. 9, 1971, Gen. John D. Ryan, Air Force chief of staff, approved the program’s establishment.

The graduates in Friday’s ceremony balanced demanding military work schedules while developing their minds to complete their associate of applied science degrees.

Graduates’ family members, friends, commanders, supervisors and co-workers were on hand help to honor the achievements of the graduates.

The following Airmen received associate degrees for the 2012 fall and 2013 spring terms:
