WATERVILLE, Maine — Valeria Dominguez of Elizabeth was one of 477 seniors who graduated from Colby College May 23, receiving a bachelor of arts degree at the outdoor commencement in Waterville, Maine.
Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs Judith A. McHale urged graduates to recognize human commonalities as they embark on their careers. “What unites us as humans is far more powerful and important than what divides us,” she said. “From Waterville to Moscow to Islamabad, people everywhere share the same aspirations for their families and communities.”
Colby President William D. Adams handed a diploma to Dominguez and each of the graduates.
Valeria Dominguez, a graduate of Kent Place School, is the daughter of Rafael and Rovira Dominguez.
Founded in 1813, Colby College is the 12th-oldest independent liberal arts college in the nation.
