This week was Graduation Day for our 2012/13 Emerging Leaders Class. The Emerging Leaders program is a collaborative effort between the Home Care Alliance of MA and Suffolk University’s Moakley Center for Public Management. Students in the program attend classes – taught by Suffolk faculty – one full day a month for nine months. Upon completing the program, they receive a Certificate in Home Care Management, as well as course credits to apply towards a master’s level program at Suffolk.
In a ceremony attended by family, friends and faculty, the graduates heard from class speaker Michelle Landry about how the students bonded over, and overcame, their fear of writing class papers and about the value of the course information. Keynote Speaker Meg Doherty, CEO of NVNA and Hospice, congratulated the class on their commitment to learning and leadership despite the sacrifices made and the disruption to their lives and that of their families. “As leaders,” she told the class, “you will not just do a job, but make a difference.”
Congratulations to this year’s graduation class: Barbara Belony, Jose DeLaRosa, Janez Hicks, Michelle Landry, Mary O’Malley, Michelle Sweeney, Jenna Tarara, Bernadette Ward and Kathy Wisenski.
