Frederick Community College Graduation 5

Graduate Davidson Andreus holds his son, Ezra Andreus, 1, during the Frederick Community College graduation for the Class of 2022 on Thursday. Graduates were recognized in a modified ceremony, and were provided designated time blocks throughout the day to receive their diplomas.

The time Amanda Rice and her classmates spent at Frederick Community College was a bit rockier than they might have expected. As they learned firsthand, a pandemic can complicate matters.

But on Thursday afternoon, as the sun beat down on the courtyard outside the school’s Student Center, Rice stood in the shade with a certificate in hand, a new best friend by her side and her 5-month-old baby boy sleeping nearby.
