His keynote address was delivered to the school at the invitation of the school’s president, Linda Brodeur. The event, part of an Alumni Career Day, brought together all 750 students, along with faculty and administration members, to listen to Keegan’s message.

Keegan reflected on his own days as a BG Cardinal, shared his personal connection to the students and recalled his best memories of high school life.
