HOLLEY — The Top 10 graduates at Holley, Kendall, Lyndonville and Medina will be addressed by a Holley graduate who has a medical doctorate degree.

Kaci Schiavone is the keynote speaker at the 33rd annual Top 10 dinner on June 3 at Hickory Ridge Golf Course and Country Club.

After she graduated from Holley in 2009, Schiavone earned a bachelor’s science degree from the University of Rochester in biochemistry with distinction in research. She then spent a year at the University of Pittsburgh as a research lab technician in the field of X-ray crystallography.
