(2007-06-11)
(WOUB) - The long-time head of one southeast Ohio school has been honored by another.

Hocking College President John Light was awarded an honorary degree at Ohio University's commencement on Saturday.

Light has been in charge at Hocking for nearly 40 years, making him the longest-serving president at any college or university in the state.

OU says Light transformed his two-year school into one of Ohio's best offering degrees in technical and service programs.
