2018 Commencement Honorary Degree Recipients

Keynote Speaker: Diane Guerrero

Diane Guerrero

Diane Guerrero is an actress, activist, and author known for her roles as “Maritza Ramos” on the award winning, Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Netflix series Orange Is The New Black (for which she received three Screen Actors Guild awards), as "Lina" in CW's break-out hit, Jane The Virgin, and as “Sofia” a series regular on the CBS comedy Superior Donuts.

Diane’s memoir, In The Country We Love, published by Henry Holt, details her life as a citizen daughter of undocumented parents, and her years-long struggle to deal with the consequences of the broken immigration system.

Diane is a nationally sought-after speaker including speaking at universities, galas, and Boston’s 2017 historic July 4th Oration. She is an outspoken advocate for commonsense, comprehensive immigration reform and in 2015, was named a White House Ambassador for Citizenship and Naturalization. She has also worked with the Immigrant Legal Resource Center; Mi Familia Vota, a nonpartisan Latino civic engagement organization to promote immigration reform and voter registration; and is a National Museum of the American Latino partner.

Jack Connors, Jr.

Jack Connors, Jr. is a founding partner of Hill, Holliday, Connors, Cosmopulos, Inc., a full-service marketing communications company. Under his leadership, Hill, Holliday evolved from a one-room shop, founded in 1968, to one of the top 20 advertising firms in the United States.

Early in his career, he became interested and active in the philanthropic life of the city of Boston, serving on boards and leading civic campaigns. In fact, throughout Greater Boston, Jack Connors is known for these efforts as well as for his business acumen. Boston Magazine named him one of the most powerful people in Boston, and he’s been a major force behind initiatives such as The Campaign for Catholic Schools, and The Edward M. Kennedy Institute.

As an articulate advocate for Boston’s world-class hospitals, Jack served as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Partners HealthCare System for 16 years and became Chairman Emeritus in July 2012. He has served on the Boston College Board of Trustees for over 30 years and was Chair of that board for two terms. He is a member of the Board of Directors of Partners-In-Health, the HomeBase Program, Beyond Conflict, the Board of Fellows at Harvard Medical School, and Board of Dean’s Advisors for the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

Camp Harbor View is arguably the charity that is closest to Jack’s heart. When the late Mayor Thomas Menino asked for his help in identifying a solution for the problem of unattended children and teens experiencing boredom and violence during the summer months, Jack proposed that he raise enough money to build a summer camp on Long Island in Boston Harbor, and Camp Harbor View was born.

Born in Boston, Jack is a graduate of Boston College and resides in Brookline, Massachusetts. He and his wife, Eileen, have four children and thirteen grandchildren.
