A former Ford Motor Co. executive and a member of Saint Vincent College's board of directors will be the main speaker at the school's spring honors convocation, which will be held at 1 p.m. April 25 in the Saint Vincent Archabbey Basilica, Unity Township.

Bibiana Boerio, of Unity Township, also will be honored with the college's Presidential Medal of Honor.

A native of Latrobe, Boerio serves as a member and officer of several non-profit educational and community service organizations.

As a member of Saint Vincent's board, she is leading a special project to finalize plans for the new learning commons at the Latimer Family Library. Prior to the convocation, a groundbreaking ceremony for the construction will be held at the site at 11 a.m.

Boerio has served as interim president of Seton Hill University in Greensburg, her alma mater, where she earned a bachelor of science degree with highest honors in home economics. She earned a master's degree in business administration from the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Business.

While with Ford, Boerio served as managing director of Jaguar Cars in England, the first woman to hold that post. She also was chief of staff for former U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak and is a candidate for the Democratic Party's nomination in the 14th Congressional District. She serves as a member of the boards of the United Way of Westmoreland County and Adelphoi USA; chair of the Greensburg Central Catholic Junior Senior High School advisory council; and member of the Greater Latrobe School District Art Conservation Trust.

She was a former member of the boards of directors of Seton Hill University and University of Pittsburgh Katz School of Business.

At the honors convocation, outstanding senior students will be recognized for academic excellence in their major fields of study and special awards will be presented by the Student Government Association for service to the college community.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
