Huot also asked graduates to remember recently deceased members of the college family.
Longtime Keene State groundskeeper Nate DeMond of Fitzwilliam died last month of electrocution from a power line down on a property adjacent to the Keene State College Athletic Complex on Krif Road. And Sean Thomas, a safety and occupational health major and management minor, died this week.
Just under 1,000 students received undergraduate degrees during the ceremony Saturday afternoon. Another 37 received graduate degrees.
An honorary doctor of science degree was presented to Dr. Howard W. Smith, who graduated from Keene State in 1942, for his contributions to medicine and to medical education, as well as his commitment to service to others.
"We need other people, and they need us," he said.
