Graduation celebration


Susan Wilson, 52, reaches out to hug her adviser, Wendy Shellhorn, after Wilson graduated with a degree in health administration at the St. Petersburg College spring commencement ceremony Tuesday at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg. Wilson of Dunedin will pursue a master's degree to become a licensed mental health therapist. "I'm in recovery, and I want to help other addicts," Wilson said. Wilson has been clean for 15 years and said, "I know the back end now. I'm going to be able to diagnose and help others with substance issues due to mental health."
