Four Norfolk Residents Graduate from Ursuline Academy

On Sunday, June 6, the seventy-five members of the Class of 2021 received their diplomas from Ursuline Academy, becoming its 75th graduating class since the school’s founding in 1946.
With a large number of the community vaccinated and Massachusetts COVID restrictions relaxing, Ursuline was able to hold an in-person graduation ceremony and Baccalaureate Mass, with both ceremonies held outdoors on campus. Just prior to the ceremony, the graduates assembled for a formal photo on the staircase leading up to the Ursuline Convent, framed by rhododendron shrubs in full bloom.
The valedictory address was delivered by Nicole Olson and the two salutatory addresses were delivered by Brooke DeLucia and Greta Wyers.
All of the graduates are to be commended for successfully completing Ursuline Academy’s challenging academic curriculum and for being accepted to some of the nation’s finest colleges and universities.
