MASSENA -- Matthew Carroll of Massena recently received a bachelor of arts degree from Drew University at the university's 145th commencement.

Drew President Vivian A. Bull presided over the ceremony, which featured a keynote address by Shakespeare scholar Frank Occhiogrosso.

Speaking to graduates, Occhiogrosso paraphrased Ernest Hemingway, urging them to continue their involvement in mankind.

"Having done us all proud already, do not stop doing so," he said. "Never allow yourselves to say 'I've done my part; now it's someone else's turn.' It's never somebody else's turn; it's always yours."
