FRAMINGHAM – MassBay Community College held its 57th Commencement ceremony at the Wellesley Hills campus, yesterday, May 23.
The ceremony celebrated the 2019 graduating class and included a speech from City of Framingham Mayor Yvonne Spicer.
As the keynote speaker, Mayor Spicer reminisced on her childhood, school days, accomplishments, and she offered some advice to the graduates.
She also took time to appreciate the city of Framingham and take pride in its achievements.
Spicer was not the only representative of Framingham who took the stage at the commencement.
Students Jonathan Lam and Amanda Miles, both Framingham residents, received awards for their successful years at MassBay.
Lam was presented with the Foster Furcolo Scholarship. This award grants him a two-year scholarship to attend the University of Massachusetts Boston which he will be taking advantage of starting in the fall.
Miles received the Division Award in Humanities and Social Sciences as well as the All-College Academic Award for achieving a 4.0 GPA.
Lam and Miles were just two of the many students graduating Thursday. Among this graduating class were parents, grandparents, veterans, international students, and much more.
The diverse group of students are now off to different paths which vary from new schools to new jobs.
Congratulations to the class of 2019!
