More than 300 Shoreline Community College graduates chose to "walk" at the 2009 Commencement ceremonies.
The featured speaker at the June 7, 2009 event was a homecoming of sorts for State Sen. Paull Shin, a former professor at SCC. Sen. Shin used details of his own life, a orphan on the streets of Seoul during the Korean War who earned a Ph.D and careers in education and politics, as an example to students of what can accomplished.
The student speaker was Genesee Rickel and faculty speaker was Bob Francis.
