Carbone is among 755 graduating seniors Holy Cross celebrated at its 176th Commencement held in person on Friday, May 27 at the DCU Center in Worcester. Acclaimed writer and infectious disease physician Abraham Verghese delivered this year’s address to the Class of 2022 and received an honorary degree. Holy Cross also awarded an honorary degree to its former president Rev. Philip L. Boroughs, S.J. Holy Cross President Vincent D. Rougeau presided over the celebratory event. This marks his fi rst commencement exercises since being installed as the school’s 33rd president – the fi rst lay and fi rst Black president to lead the 179-yearold institution – back in October 2021. In his remarks, Dr. Verghese – a best-selling author and professor and vice chair for the Theory and Practice of Medicine at Stanford University, asked graduates to consider how they will defi ne success in their personal stories after graduation. “My advice to you would be: Don’t set the bar too high,” Verghese told the graduates. “Don’t live your life waiting for the one magical moment when you achieve this or that, or have this much in the bank, or particular letters behind your name. You and I know too many people, often successful, famous, accomplished people, whose success was not enough to keep them joyful. I would urge you to defi ne success for yourself simply such that on a daily basis you can feel joy.” Everett to host free COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics on Saturdays in June he City of Everett will host free COVID-19 vaccine clinics every Saturday in June at the former Pope John XXIII High School.
