Mark Stoever, PMW ’97, told 670 graduating students at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion that agility and creative thinking are necessities in today’s ever-changing marketplace. Speaking as the president and chief operating officer at employment website Monster Worldwide, he said, “Your degree will make up one of the tidbits of information on your profile, but it surely will not tell your career story.”

Stoever, as well as Faraj Aalaei, EEE ’81, received honorary degrees at the ceremony. Aalaei is the chief executive officer and president of Aquantia Corp. Stephanie Holland, BFPM ’06, second vice president of the Wentworth Alumni Association (WAA), presented the Institute with a $20,000 check, on behalf of the WAA, which will be used toward scholarships for future generations of Wentworth students.
