Below is an announcement from Lesley University:

CAMBRIDGE, MA — Lesley University on May 22 awarded more than 1,200 degrees and certificates in a virtual Commencement ceremony viewed by thousands of family, friends, alumni and well-wishers.

Among those awarded a Masters in Education was Jillian Williams of Wilmington, MA.

“This year’s graduates have needed more than the usual amount of emotional strength and resilience to complete their degrees,” President Janet L. Steinmayer said in her remarks, referring to the COVID-19 pandemic and national social unrest. “Never has Lesley’s motto, ‘I would have perished had I not persisted,’ felt more apt.”
