"Ninteenth Commencement Exercises"
On Saturday, June 18th, Sacred Heart University held its Nineteenth Commencement Exercises for students earning Master’s Degrees and Professional Certificates at the University’s campus in Luxembourg.
This year, no honoris causa degree was conferred but Dr. Norbert Becker, Chairman of the Sacred Heart University Board of Regents, delivered the Commencement Address titled “Uncertainties” and honored the memory of Dr. Edmond Israel, former Chairman of the Board.
In Luxembourg, 13 students representing 9 countries received from the new Sacred Heart University President, Dr. John Petillo, Ph.D. their Master of Business Administration (MBA) degrees and Graduate Professional Certificates.
Pedro Barata, working for Vodafone Group, was the Class Valedictorian and recipient of the Gold Medal of Excellence this year.
