Commencement ceremony May 16 in the Fitness and Wellness Center. A total of 805 associate degrees and academic certificates were awarded to 752 graduating students.
Distinguished media executive and MWCC alumnus Robert Regan delivered the keynote address. Regan, who studied broadcasting and communications at the old Elm Street Campus and was among the first class to graduate from the new building in 1975, went on to work as a producer in Boston and Hollywood for 38 years before recently being named founding director of the Dr. John Keshishoglou Center for global Communications Innovation at Ithaca College.
"I urge you to dream big dreams and make them happen. You'll find that having a support team will not only keep your dream alive, but also help you bring it to fruition. We can't do it alone; be open to collaboration; be inspired to dream. And let the people that you trust in on your dream. Don't be afraid. Walk face first into that risk. Imagine a more perfect world than the one you live in. Then engage in making that happen."
