ADAMS,  Mass. — At a time when most are thinking of limitless potential and endless possibilities, BArT senior Will Schrade invited his classmates to embrace mediocrity.   Perhaps not forever, but at this particular moment, as the class of 2020 huddled around their computer screens in quarantine instead of gathering in a gymnasium bursting to capacity, the concept of "good enough" has a certain appeal, Schrade argued.   He was one of four Berkshire Arts and Technology Charter Public School students to provide "senior reflections" during Saturday's hourlong graduation exercises, the first virtual high school graduation in Berkshire

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Although this year's MCLA Innovation & Entrepreneurship Challenge, held May 4-8, was a virtual affair, the college community still came together to view and vote for the three finalists' pitches.

The finalists, all seniors who pitched their business ideas via video, were David Flight, Kimberly Granito and Sierra Lamonde. The students were coached through a series of deliverables — determining the solution to the problem, developing a budget and business plan as the roadmap for the project or business, and presenting before a panel of judges.

Granito’s "Detailing Dream" won first place, which came with a $7,500 award.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Any other year, the graduates of Berkshire Community College and their friends and families would be filling The Shed at Tanglewood in Lenox.

  But instead of taking the stage, speakers stood alone in front of a backdrop. And instead of being handed their certificates and diplomas, the more than 200 graduates' names were read as their pictures were shown.    What didn't change was the ceremony's broadcast on Pittsfield Community Television, allowing at least a virtual coming together of the BCC community to mark their significant accomplishments.   President Ellen Kennedy reminded those watching how commencement celebrates not just

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Higher education is learning lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic that it will inform their operations long after the crisis has passed, a group of top administrators agreed on Friday.   "I had begun to think about the ways in which the modalities of teaching that remote learning offers can infuse and enrich some aspects of teaching, without suggesting that we would move in any way to a fully remote learning platform or even a largely remote platform," Williams College President Maud Mandel said.   "There are aspects of the modality of remote learning I think faculty have found to be enriching of their teaching, and that's one area that I
