NEW: City Manager to Receive Honorary Degree From Becker College

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

 

Becker College announced that Worcester City Manager, Michael O'Brien will receive an honorary degree and deliver a keynote address at the Honors Convocation. O’Brien will receive a doctorate of humane letters at Becker College’s 225th Commencement ceremony, to be held on Saturday, May 11, 2013, at the Hanover Theatre.

“We are proud to honor City Manager O’Brien with one of two honorary degrees we will award this year,” said Becker College President Robert E. Johnson, Ph.D.
The City Manager’s keynote address will be delivered at the Honors Convocation ceremony on Friday, May 10, at 3:00 p.m., on the college’s Leicester Campus.

“Mr. O’Brien has worked with leaders throughout the Commonwealth and capitalized on Worcester’s strengths to begin a lasting transformation. His contributions and commitment to this city are a source of inspiration and resonate with the Becker College mission,” Johnson said.

Becker College awards honorary doctoral degrees to individuals who merit its highest recognition by attaining achievements of extraordinary and lasting distinction and demonstrating personal and professional qualities that are consistent with the mission and values of Becker College: outstanding humanitarian or public service in the global arena, in our nation, or in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts; exceptional contributions to knowledge in the world of scholarship; creativity and innovation in any field that has enriched lives; and support of Becker College.

In a release, the college stated that under O’Brien’s leadership, Worcester is in the midst of one of the most aggressive economic development agendas in the Commonwealth and listed the city’s current public and private investments as some of his accomplishments including the arrival of JetBlue, transportation work, public health outreach, and the City Square project.
