A message to Fall 2020 graduating students from President Summerby-Murray.
Dear fall graduands,
Over the past months, our graduation committee has explored many ceremony options for this September's graduation. Considering Nova Scotia Public Health guidelines and the possibility of a second COVID-19 wave, graduation will take place virtually this September. While we had hoped to return to an in-person ceremony, the safety of you, your family and our Saint Mary's community remains our priority.
Your virtual graduation will take place on Friday, September 25 at 3 pm (ADT). Over the coming weeks, you will receive more details and a Save the Date invitation.
I am very proud of how each of you has handled the many changes that have taken place over the past months. As we adjust to this new reality, you are showing resilience, care, and concern for your community, qualities that make the Santamarian community a remarkable one.
I look forward to this September when we will join together online to celebrate your hard work and academic achievement!
Dr. Robert Summerby-Murray
President and Vice-Chancellor
