Beacon College President Dr. George Hagerty recently delivered commencement remarks at the Fletcher School in Charlotte, NC.
Similar to Beacon College — a private nonprofit liberal arts school and America’s first institution of higher education accredited to award bachelor’s degrees to students who learn differently — the Fletcher School is a private K-12 school for students with learning disabilities.
Hagerty spoke about hopscotching obstacles and never being limited by one’s unique abilities, declaring that one’s “island of challenge does not define the landscape of your life.”
Hagerty’s words surely resonated with one graduate, in particular. Jack Andreozzi (pictured) will attend Beacon College in Leesburg, Fla. this fall. He earned the Beacon College-Fletcher School Pathway Scholarship. The $10,000 four-year award acknowledges the simpatico missions of Beacon College and the Fletcher School to equip capable students with learning differences to navigate paths towards a college education.
