Commencement ceremonies, held on the beautiful Academic Quad, included an address by Dr. Catherine Romagnolo, associate professor of English and winner of the 2011 Thomas Rhys Vickroy Award for teaching.
Romagnolo wondered what the first graduating class at LVC, the class of 1870, would have been thinking as they prepared to move on from college, and offered this advice: "Never underestimate the power of words, use your words to make change, circulate a discourse of kindness and acceptance, and your world will be an accepting and kind place to live. 'Put an alternative discourse into circulation.'"
