About 320 Central Lakes College students from the Brainerd campus were honored as they attended the two-hour, 12-minute commencement ceremony last night at Brainerd High School's gymnasium. Special recognition was accorded to the first two Honors AA degree graduates, Julie Jo Larson and Margaret Tiede, as well as international students, state student leader Steve Sabin, 15 retiring employees, state-honored instructors Steve Anderson and Martha Kuehn, and President Larry Lundblad of CLC for his national award from Phi Theta Kappa. The ceremony was videotaped for airing on local public access channels. Images from both Brainerd and Staples commencements may be viewed at
