Commencement is Over, But Messages Resonate

May 17, 2012

Widener University’s Commencement ceremonies saw almost 900 graduates cross the stage and pick up their diplomas on Saturday.  Messages by the top two outgoing students, Valedictorian Michael Forese of Downingtown, Pa., and Salutatorian Jacqueline Beers of Upper Darby, Pa., are posted online.

“The education and knowledge we received at Widener is now the foundation we can use to accomplish all of our goals and dreams,” Forese said. “Now is the time to go out and achieve our potential, not be complacent with the successes we have just achieved.”

You can read the rest of Forese’s speech, as well as Beers’s remarks, online.  You also can peruse a vast photo album with many photographs from the big day.
