After lots of hard work and studying, more than 60 students at Gadsden Technical Institute are ready to step into the real world.
The technical institute hosted a graduation ceremony for this fall's graduates Friday night.
From welding to automotive service, the grads say they're ready to take on the world.
"It means a lot. I'm going into the real world and starting college soon. It'll help me out a lot," said Joani Nathey.
More than 60 students graduated this semester. That's the highest number the institute has ever seen.
