Spring 2019 Commencement
In his address to the assemblage of students, faculty, staff, family, and friends, Landmark College President Dr. Peter Eden said “there are strengths in differences,” and he urged the 69 newly-minted associate and bachelor’s degree recipients to help society work toward that realization. Many of the students who chose to speak at the podium proved President Eden’s point with cogent and emotionally poignant remarks.
