A DSC press release further informs that this year’s keynote speaker is Father Herman Sharplis, “a true son of the soil, well known for his community activism and charismatic preaching.” Father Sharplis has just completed his Masters in Canon Law at St. Paul University in Ottawa, Canada.
At the commencement ceremony, fifty-six (56) students will graduate with honours having obtained a grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 or above. Notably, two students will graduate with bachelor’s degrees. Outstanding graduates across all programs will receive special awards, the major highlight of which is the Valedictorian award chosen on the basis of outstanding academic performance and significant contribution to collegiate life and community outreach.
