Niagara University Holds 11th BPS Commencement in Ontario
Niagara University’s College of Education awarded degrees to 122 graduates during its 11th commencement in Ontario on Wednesday, May 23, at the Toronto Centre for the Arts in North York.
Robert Cutting, a Catholic educator in Ontario for more than 40 years, delivered the commencement address with the deft pacing and intonation of a seasoned, master storyteller. Upon receiving the Ozanam Medal from the Rev. James J. Maher, C.M., president of Niagara University, Cutting told the new graduates that “education is the key to everything” and to choose their words wisely as they begin their careers as teachers.
NU also presented its St. Louise de Marillac Award for Outstanding Service to Dr. Ashleigh Molloy, a global expert on developmental disabilities who adroitly juggles roles as a keynote speaker, adjunct professor, author, presenter and member of Niagara University’s Teacher Education Advisory Committee.
