Graduation Speaker!

Lisa Pervola, a GPS (Graduate & Professional Studies) graduate student from Maryland, was the guest speaker at Saint Joseph’s College (SJC) 2012 graduation exercise. She spoke of the value of family support and commitment to lifelong learning. Lisa completed a Bachelor’s degree in 2008 and went on to finish a Master’s degree online from SJC. Her keynote message to everyone was to thank and acknowledge others for their contributions to individual learning.

She cited Albert Schweitzer: “At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”

Thank you Lisa for a job well done.     Congratulations on your accomplishments!
