LONG ISLAND (WABC) -- It was a celebratory night for 600 undergraduate, graduate and law students at Hofstra University on Long Island.
The school held its mid-year commencement ceremony on Tuesday.
It was a special night for Eyewitness News as well.
Our president and general manager, Marilu Galvez, was the commencement speaker at the mid-year ceremony, where she received an honorary degree from the school.
Galvez has been at Channel 7 since 2001. She started as an assignment editor and now she's the head of the station.
Channel 7 is proud to have our Long Island bureau on the Hofstra campus, and now we have a new doctor in the house.
