July 29, 2021
Dante Herrera, of Culver City, received a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science during the 2021 Commencement Ceremonies of Hobart and William Smith Colleges, held on Sunday, May 16. Herrera is the child of William A. Herrera and Paula Amezola de Herrera.
Having persevered through an unprecedented academic year, 514 undergraduates and 10 master’s candidates received their diplomas during an in-person ceremony held on the Hobart and William Smith campus.
Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden L.H.D. ’21 delivered the Commencement Address. In her remarks, she said that the “once-in-a-lifetime” challenges of the pandemic have been a dramatic test of resiliency for this year’s graduates, as well as a “catalyst for thinking about the nature of work, what is important in life and how to help everyone move into the digital future with equity and dignity.”
In her address, HWS President Joyce P. Jacobsen praised the campus’ collective strength over the past year and “the tenacity, dedication and sheer willpower of its individuals.”
