Wilmer and Donna Johnson with Connie Henderson (center). As the dust settles following a big spring semester at Northeastern Junior College, the college’s alumni association is especially proud of the great job that Wilmer and Donna Johnson of Sterling did serving as the 2014 alumni mace bearers during commencement held last month.  Wilmer graduated from Northeastern Junior College in 1950 and Donna in 1951. The name of the college was changed from Sterling Junior College to Northeastern Junior College in 1950. The Johnsons joined the 2013-2014 Faculty Senate President Connie Henderson (center) who is a professor of biology at the college and also a past graduate of NJC, to escort the ceremonial mace to the front of the Bank of Colorado Event Center at the start of the graduation ceremony.  (Courtesy Photo)
