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.
