Manchester Community College held its 66th commencement May 23rd, celebrating the achievements of 252 graduates – the largest graduating class in the college's history – and honoring several students with special awards. The ceremony was held at the Sullivan Arena at St. Anselm College.

In keeping with a new MCC tradition of having alumni serve as commencement speakers, David A. Fink (MCC Class of 1988, with an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Welding Technology), a Major and Senior Operations Officer, 197th Fires Brigade, NH Army National Guard, and a welding process engineer at the New England Small Tube Corporation, was the 2012 Commencement Speaker.

During the ceremonies, MCC President Dr. Susan Huard presented a plaque in memory of Christopher A. Lessard (Hooksett), a 39-year-old welding student who died unexpectedly May 3rd. His fiancée, Meghan Hebert, received the plaque; his diploma was presented to his mother, Pamela Lessard. The text on the plaque, which was written by Lessard's classmates, described him as a mentor, a big brother, the one "who held together our class," and a friend who "left us for the better after knowing him."

Two students were recognized as part of the commencement exercises:
Amy Conklin (Derry) received the President's Award for highest GPA.
Tia Brien (Auburn) received the College Service Award.

President Huard, Interim Vice President of Academic Affairs Kim Keegan, and members of the Community College System of NH’s Board of Trustees presented the students with their diplomas.

The college awards three different types of associate degrees: Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.); Associate in Arts (A.A.) and Associate in Science (A.S).
