In the background are, left, Jeff Labs, Nicolet dean of Trade, Industry, and Apprenticeships, and Howard Honig, Nicolet Maintenance Mechanic instructor. "By getting an education, each of you has proven that you have the courage, strength, and determination to better your lives," Carr said in his address to the graduates. This is the third graduating class from McNaughton to complete an academic program at Nicolet.
