Region – Local residents graduated from Saint Michael's College during the 105th commencement exercises, which were held May 14 on the college campus.

Brittany Taylor Richardson, daughter of Cynthia Moore of Northborough, graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, magna cum laude degree in Religious Studies and Sociology and Anthropology.

Alyssa Marie Urella, daughter of Elaine Urella of Shrewsbury, graduated with a Bachelor of Science, magna cum laude degree in Accounting.

Commencement speaker, MTV media pioneer and humanitarian, Tom Freston, a member of the Saint Michael's graduate class of 1967, told the graduates hard work is key to their future.

“My advice,” he said, “is really to look for a career in fields that are on the ascent-social innoviation – and bring an old-fashioned work ethic to them.

“There is great value and sustaining dignity in good old-fashioned hard work, whether that means crunching numbers or cleaning bathrooms.”
