Summit students celebrate graduations, scholarships

Some Summit County students graduated from universities on the other side of the country this spring, while some earned local scholarships that will help them start off their college careers.

  • Dillon native Joy Manguso graduated summa cum laude from Roger Williams University in May with a degree in management. Manguso was also named to the university’s spring 2021 dean’s list. To make the dean’s list, students must complete 12 or more credits per semester and earn a GPA of at least 3.4. Roger Williams is located in Bristol, Rhode Island.
  • Breckenridge native William Hurlbert graduated from Quinnipiac University in May with a degree in finance. Quinnipiac University is located in Hamden, Connecticut.
