Middletown residents and Wesley College students Jacquelyn Beck and Allison Perugini were among 58 students recognized at Wesley College’s baccalaureate service for the class of 2017 on May 5 at Bennett Chapel.

Wesley students were presented their academic stoles from a family member or another important influence in their educational development. The academic stole is a cloth scarf to denote such things as academic achievements, membership of organizations and heritage.
