by Celia Shortt

Coweta’s Central Educational Center will hold its 2014 spring graduation ceremony tonight at 7 p.m. at the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts on Lower Fayetteville Road in Newnan.

The ceremony will recognize more than 200 Coweta County high school students who have earned certificates through dual-enrollment courses offered through West Georgia Technical College (WGTC). At the ceremony, WGTC will honor both adult students and high school dual-enrollment students attending the Central Educational Center, many of whom have earned certificates in multiple disciplines.

State Representative Lynn Smith, R-Newnan, is a special speaker for the ceremony and will address the graduates.
