New England College (NEC) gathered in person to celebrate the achievements of the class of 2022. The College’s Commencement ceremony was held Saturday, May 14, on the Henniker campus and conferred degrees to over 500 on-campus and online undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students.
Graduates, along with their families and friends, heard from New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, who served as Commencement Speaker. Gov. Sununu received an honorary doctorate from NEC during the ceremony. Lech Wałęsa, Nobel Peace Prize laureate and former President of Poland, also attended NEC’s Commencement and received an honorary doctorate.
“The class of 2022 embodies perseverance,” commented Dr. Michele D. Perkins, President of NEC. “These graduates stayed the course of their education during unprecedented times. The lessons they learned during their time at New England College, both in the classroom and in life, will serve them well as they launch their careers and the next phases of their lives. They will use their NEC education to do great things.”
