On June 3, Holly Garcia graduated from Massachusetts School of Law (MSLAW) with a Juris Doctor degree. On that exact date in 2009 she graduated from Everett High School after having 14 years of perfect attendance. After high school, she graduated from Southern New Hampshire University with a bachelor’s degree in 2013 and again with a master’s degree in 2015.
It has been her ambition to become a lawyer since she was 10 years old. She will sit for the bar exam in July and plans to practice family and juvenile law. During her time at MSLAW, she was the president of the Student Bar Association and the Diversity Alliance. She also participated in the MSLAW Meal Moderator program and served hot meals to residents of the Greater Lawrence YMCA once a month. All of this involvement in student activities and her continuous positive attitude contributed to her being honored as a Dean’s Award recipient at her commencement ceremony.
