A Central Coast college is holding its 100th graduation ceremony Friday.

It's been a year like no other, for these students.

And now, for those graduating Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria today, it's a graduation ceremony like no other - and not just because it's a drive-up ceremony.

It's special because it's the college's 100th graduating class.

Student David Bautista Gonzalez, who has studied Business Administration, is part of Friday's historic ceremony and says it's an honor.

"It's pretty cool to experience that centennial celebration, " he told KCLU. "You think 100 is just a number but we help thousands of students a year so to think that's been happening for a hundred years is incredible."
