Meet Doanya Gholami, Class of 2021 Valedictorian

"What I will miss most about Acadia are the people I have met and the family we all are. Being able to attend a school where there are warm smiles everywhere you go is truly a blessing. I know that this bond will never die, and I wish that everyone leaves Acadia knowing this family is always here for each other."

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic prevented us from celebrating the Class of 2021 with our traditional Convocation experience. However, it hasn't stopped the Acadia community from coming together to celebrate our new alumni.

Watch as Halifax's Doanya Gholami (BBA, '21), Class of 2021 Valedictorian, shares a heartfelt address with the graduating class:
