Naomi Adamsky Naomi Adamsky of Newton, MA has been selected as the Student Commencement Speaker at the 60th Commencement Exercises of MassBay Community College. Naomi will graduate with an Associate of Science Degree in General Science during the ceremony.

Adamsky enrolled at MassBay directly after high school, but decided to step away and work full-time, taking time to determine what she truly wanted for her future. Naomi eventually decided to finish what she started and enthusiastically resumed her college career. “I thought I had failed, but after returning to college and enjoying my classes the second time around, I ultimately walked away stronger and more aware of where I wanted to go in life. Taking that time away to discover what I really wanted to do was life-changing.”

When Adamsky addresses her fellow graduates and the MassBay community at Commencement, her speech will focus on “the times in our lives when we feel we may have failed and how much it hurts us to fail, it’s part of life, and how we learn and grow from these challenges help shape us and our futures.” She hopes the “graduates look at their journeys and reflect on how much they have learned and gained from their own experiences.

Adamsky has been on the Dean’s List every semester she has been at MassBay and currently, holds a 3.9 GPA, and is a member of the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society. Adamsky will earn her Associate in Science in general studies and will transfer to Simmons University in Boston, MA to pursue her bachelor’s degree in information technology.


Tahlia Butler Tahlia Butler of Bedford, MA has been selected to sing the national anthem at the 60th Commencement Exercises of MassBay Community College. Tahlia is a current general studies student.

“I am excited for the opportunity to represent the students of MassBay and to honor our 2022 graduates,” said Butler. “It is also, really cool to be singing with The Wellesley Symphony Orchestra.” The Wellesley Symphony Orchestra has been MassBay’s orchestra-in-residence since 1984.

Butler always loved singing and being involved in theater. During her middle and high school years, she participated in school choir programs. Since starting at MassBay in fall 2021, Butler has been involved in campus life. She is a senator in the Student Government Association, president of the MassBay Film Society, and student ambassador for the Students of Color Program. She recently completed MassBay’s Leadership Engagement and Development (LEAD) program and is an advocate for mental health, especially amongst her peers.

Butler is scheduled to graduate from MassBay in May 2023 and will transfer to a four-year university to pursue her bachelor’s degree.
