RBC Celebrates Class of 2020

Richard Bland College of William & Mary celebrated the Class of 2020 with a virtual commencement ceremony that awarded associate degrees to 252 graduates. In addition to remarks from W&M Rector John Littel and RBC President Debbie Sydow, RBC and W&M alumnus Victor Branch delivered the keynote address at the 57th annual commencement.

Mr. Branch, a former member of the RBC Foundation Board of Directors and current member of the W&M Board of Visitors, delivered the 2020 commencement address. Mr. Branch grew up in Dinwiddie, and after graduating from RBC in 1982, he earned a B.A. degree in sociology from William & Mary. He currently is the Richmond Market President for Bank of America.

Branch commended the graduating class for being hard-working, dedicated, determined, flexible, and resilient. “I am, like many of you, a first-generation college graduate,” Branch said. “The encouragement I got at RBC to do more and be more put me on a path towards success. RBC has helped this graduating class to overcome challenges, remove obstacles, and keep pushing to find innovative and creative ways to persevere. Your future is bright, and the best is yet to come.”

Alden Di Dio, Vice President of the Student Assembly, represented the Class of ’20 as the student speaker. He asked his fellow graduates not to forget where they began their academic journey and to remember the memories, friends, and education earned at RBC. “I am proud of you, I will miss you and I love you,” Di Dio said. “RBC is a home away from home that respects you, guides you, and cares about you.” Di Dio will attend William & Mary in the fall.
