Congratulations Montserrat Class of 2020!
The Class of 2020 and their guests were welcomed back to Beverly on Saturday, Oct. 2 for an 11 am commencement celebration at The Cabot, 286 Cabot St., Beverly. The recording is available via live stream below.
The college was unable to hold a commencement ceremony in May of 2020 due to the pandemic and government and health guidelines and restrictions. The class of 2020 officially graduated in May and they received their diplomas and awards by mail.
“We were excited to celebrate this class with the faculty and staff,” said Dr. Kurt Steinberg, president. “They worked hard to pursue their paths to degree completion and we were sorry we were unable to hold a ceremony to acknowledge their accomplishments. We were excited to be able to welcome them back to campus and offer them this very important milestone.”
The day featured the traditional march from the Hardie Building with caps and gowns, and banners and bagpipers.
The celebration at The Cabot was livestreamed and a recording is now available.
The keynote speaker at the celebration was Michael J. Bobbitt, executive director of the Massachusetts Cultural Council. The student chosen by the class as their speaker was Rebecca Jones and the faculty speaker was Len Thomas-Vickory. Other remarks were offered by Dr. Steinberg and Academic Dean Brian Pellinen.
Following the ceremony, the graduates and their guests were welcomed back to the Hardie Building to view the Senior Exhibition.
