GREENWOOD — The James Medford Family Event Center at Piedmont Technical College welcomed more than 350 Piedmont Technical College graduates for a commencement ceremony to celebrate their accomplishments.
Dr. Ray Brooks, president, welcomed graduates, family and guests to celebrate the accomplishments of the graduates.
