TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- ICC grad Lydia McCoy said Wednesday was a day she couldn’t wait to celebrate.
“I can finally say I achieved something other than my high school degree,” said McCoy.
Itawamba Community College administration held a drive through diploma pick up for graduates at the health science building in Tupelo.
“I didn’t even know I was going to make it. It has been a hard two years,” said McCoy.
Cars piled in the parking lot as graduates waited to receive their diplomas.
“I wish we had a graduation to walk so my family could be there but this is still good; I’m still getting my diploma,” said McCoy.
She said after all the hard work, she plans to take a break before she takes the next steps in her career path.
“I’m chilling for the summer, but after that, I'm probably doing Ole Miss Tupelo campus because I’m trying to go for pharmacy,” said McCoy.
