Keynote speaker and honorary degree recipient Christine Keville, founder, president, and CEO of Keville Enterprises, encouraged more than 300 graduates to build their success on sharing and integrity.

“The most important piece of advice I can give you is always be honest and ethical, and deliver on your word. I truly believe that if you follow your passion … you too can make dreams become a reality,” said Keville, Wentworth Trustee and the Institute’s 2015 Woman of the Year.

Wentworth conferred 182 undergraduate degrees and 120 graduate degrees at ceremonies held at the Boston Marriott Copley Place. Wentworth Alumni Association President Adam Palmer, BELM ’09, presented alumni achievement awards to four members of the College of Professional and Continuing Education’s Project Management program, while President Zorica Panti? saluted the Institute’s first students to graduate from the Technology Management program.

Honorary bachelor of technology degrees were additionally awarded to members of the Black and Gold Society celebrating their 50th reunion.
