New England College (NEC) held its 77th Commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 18, on the Simon Lawn in Henniker and celebrated the achievements of the class of 2024. Throughout the 2023–2024 academic year, approximately 1,150 students graduated from NEC’s on-campus and online undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs.

“We met these students at the beginning of their journeys, accompanied them along the way, and this is where NEC’s part of the journey ends,” stated Dr. Wayne F. Lesperance Jr., President of New England Collee. “These graduates enter the world at a time that needs them more than ever. May they take their education and determination and heed the call to make a difference in the world.”

Graduates, their families and friends, and NEC guests heard from Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Gary Trudeau, who served as Commencement Speaker. Mr. Trudeau, creator of the Doonesbury comic strip, received an honorary doctorate from NEC during the ceremony.
