SWAMPSCOTT — Approximately 70 graduates took degrees as Marian Court College celebrated its 45th commencement last night.
Top real estate agent and corporate trainer Valerie Reyes was the keynote speaker. A single mother, Reyes was chosen as an inspiration to the students, especially those of Latin background.
Marian Court's president, Dr. Ghazi Darkazalli, noted that his students are often trailblazers, the first in their families to achieve a college degree.
The following local students are among this year's graduates:
Bisa Connors (certificate)
Sheryl Barron (certificate)
Carla Hagler (certificate)
