On a joyous day of accomplishment and aspiration, the Babson College community celebrated the Class of 2024 during the undergraduate and graduate Commencement ceremonies on Saturday, May 11, on its Wellesley campus.

Just before they marched across the stage and collected their diplomas, the College’s newest graduates were reminded of the importance of establishing and holding to values by the Commencement keynote speakers—renowned entrepreneurs Arthur M. Blank ’63, H’98, the owner and chairman of the Blank Family of Businesses, and Trustee Eric Johnson ’72, H’24, P’08 and his daughter, Erin Tolefree H’24, leaders of the Baldwin Richardson Foods Company.
