Submitted by Champlain College
Derik Wrightson received a BS degree in business and Laura Cogswell received a BS degree in Mass. Communication. Both students are from Northborough.
Champlain College's 134th commencement took place at Memorial Auditorium in Burlington on Saturday, May 5. In all, 451 undergraduates and 66 graduate students earned their degrees.
Dublin scholar Dr. Patrick Masterson delivered the commencement address to degree candidates. Andrea Rogers, founder and former director of the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, spoke in honor of the three honorary degrees that were conferred.
Champlain College President David Finney noted a long list of accomplishments that graduating students had already achieved while working, serving and playing at Champlain. "Over 50 percent of the graduating class will be starting jobs within their field of study in the next week," he recognized, "and eleven have already created their own businesses while at Champlain."
