#TBT - Honoring Ted

March 26, 2015

With the Edward M. Kennedy Institute in Boston set to open on Monday, here’s a look back at Kennedy in 1964 when he received an honorary degree at Stonehill’s 12th Commencement. Here the Senator is pictured with fellow honorary degree recipient Loretta Quinlan and College President Fr. Richard Sullivan. In recognizing Sen. Kennedy’s many contributions to Stonehill and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the College created the annual Kennedy Service Award in 2006, which is given to a member of the senior class for exemplary service to a nonprofit agency.
