"Rivier has taught us about dedication to service," said Magnolia Dixon, a history major who graduated magna cum laude. "We have the responsibility to share the privilege of education."
Carol Ann Becker, a graduate of Rivier's master's degree program in health care administration, also spoke about moving forward and putting lessons of leadership and service to work. She acknowledged it might not always be easy, but added she and her fellow graduates need to always be willing to try.
In addition to the Class of 2014, Rivier also awarded an honorary degree to Sister Cecile Gamache, PM, whose financial expertise and decades of service to the university have helped build a foundation for the institution's future development and success.
