At a ceremony held in Conte Forum on January 6, Martin Walsh, a 2010 graduate of the University’s Woods College of Advancing Studies, became Boston’s 48th mayor. As he took the stage, he was greeted by (from left) University President William P. Leahy, SJ; Cardinal Seán O’Malley, OFM, Cap.; U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren; and Governor Deval Patrick. Some 8,000 people attended the inauguration, at which cellist Yo-Yo Ma and students from the Boston Arts Academy performed. In opening remarks, Fr. Leahy noted the University’s long “partnership” with the city.
