Local Students Graduate as Part of Stonehill College's Class of 2020


Easton, MA -- Members of the Class of 2020 joined together for a virtual Commencement ceremony this past August, including:

Christina D'Amico of Riverside

Kalyn Tavares of East Providence

Initially scheduled for Sunday, May 17 with a traditional in-person format but knocked off course by COVID-19, Stonehill's 69th Commencement finally took place on Saturday, August 8 making history as the College's first virtual Commencement and the first ever held in August. Another big change this year was the presentation of candidates for master's degrees.

Live-streamed from Stonehill's McCarthy Auditorium in the Thomas and Donna May School of Arts & Sciences building the ceremony addressed 630 undergraduates, 13 graduates, their families, and a wider audience of Stonehill faculty, staff, alumni, and friends.

In prerecorded remarks, Commencement speaker New England Patriots star Matthew Slater drew on his career as a three-time Super Bowl Champion to hail the Class of 2020 for their ability to endure, persevere and thrive in the face of adversity.
