Cheers and kudos to the 2016 graduating class at St. Francis College. The mass and commencement services were held at St. Charles Borromeo Church on Jan. 14.

Valedictorian Chantell Chimbo moved over her tassels and addressed the hundreds of family members, fellow students, and faculty members in her opening speech.

“We are part of a very small percentage of college graduates who have been exposed to more than just our textbooks,” she said. “Molded into well-rounded and confident individuals, we are ready to start the next page of the new chapter of our story.”

Chantell is also a member of the St. Francis College Duns Scotus Honor Society, and was selected for two additional education honor societies: Sigma Beta Delta (International Business Management) and Omicron Delta Epsilon (International Economics).

Dr. Gerald Galgan, of the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, offered this bit of wisdom to the graduates.

“You might wind up someplace different than you intended, but the wisdom gained at St. Francis will help you prosper no matter what path you follow,” he said.

Standing O seconds that, and wishes all the students a bright and prosperous future.

St. Francis College [180 Remsen St. at Court Street in Brooklyn Heights, (718) 522–2300].
