Dennis Collins, 60, a former Craig resident who now lives in Grand Junction, will be among the Moffat County High School students earning their high school diplomas today during commencement services.

He is honored with his diploma through Operation Recognition, which allows veterans from World War II, Korea and Vietnam to receive diplomas.
