secondary institution at its Spring Convocation Ceremonies yesterday.
Also receiving an honourary degree was acclaimed Canadian Diplomat Anne Leahy. Close to one thousand students were awarded degrees and diplomas at convocation.One of her postings was in Rome as the Canadian Ambassador to the Holy See.
Her message to graduates; the earlier you realize what you accomplish with others is more valuable than your own personal achievements, the happier you will be. Also reflect on how you define success.
Leahy also advised graduates to listen to their inner voice, think critically, keep an open mind, and get involved in your community.
Degrees and diplomas were conferred to close to 1,000 St. FX graduates in Education, Adult Education, Science, Nursing, Human Kinetics, Human Nutrition, Engineering, Arts, Music, Music Jazz Studies, Business Administration and Information Systems.
