On the final day of winter, more than 700 new graduates from American Career College celebrated the change of seasons and lives at Winter Commencement 2017.

Friends and family packed the stands of Citizens Business Bank Arena as graduates from each of the 13 programs crossed the stage to receive their diploma on March 19. 

ACC Chief Operating Officer Tim Lee said it made him proud to see so many people turn out to recognize the culmination of all their hard work.

"They've done so much to achieve this, to get to where they're at today, and overcome so many obstacles," Lee said. "It's true in life: One change changes everything. These graduates today, they made a change and they have a brighter future."
