2018 Graduates Accept Diplomas and Celebrate Their Achievements at Medaille Commencement Ceremonies

Medaille College’s 2018 graduates walked the stage and accepted their diplomas at the College’s 143rd graduate and undergraduate commencement ceremonies on May 18. Friends, family, and Medaille faculty and staff were assembled at Kleinhans Music Hall to celebrate with the new graduates. The undergraduate class of 2018 included 385 graduates receiving either their associate or bachelor’s degree. Cheryl Perry Colvin, M.D., an emergency medicine physician, was the keynote speaker. Three-hundred-and-seventy graduates received their master’s or doctoral degree at the adult and graduate ceremony. Keynote speaker for the event was Nicholas Sinatra, CEO of Sinatra & Company Real Estate. An honorary degree was presented to Victoria Ross, executive director of the WNY Peace Center.
