BOSTON, June 29, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC) graduate Ana Maria Ovalle represented the College at the 9th annual Community College program at the 2012 BIO International Convention at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center on June 18th. Ovalle was one of five presenters who spoke on a panel titled "Faces of Success: Our Graduates and their Careers."

Ovalle, originally from Columbia, graduated with an Associate in Science degree in Biotechnology from BHCC on June 2, 2012. She applied to the internship with Millennium online and said her experience at BHCC helped her thrive. "BHCC definitely provided me with the basic concepts, lab techniques and soft skills required to succeed in any biotech setting," she said. Ovalle is in the Cell Culture: Process Development Group at Millennium where she works on growing and developing cell culture processes that contribute to cancer research.

The day-long community college program at the BIO International Convention was organized by BioLink, a national organization created to improve and expand educational programs that prepare skilled technicians to work in the biotechnology field.
