1,378—that’s the total number of Pioneers who were eligible for graduation ceremonies May 12 and 13. 1,221 undergraduates became new alumni and 157 received master’s degrees. The 198th commencement at UW-Platteville is in the books. Four separate commencements—four times Williams Fieldhouse was packed to the rafters. Congratulations to all our graduates.
As always, our alumni association presented the Honorary Lifetime Pioneer Award, a lifetime membership in the alumni association, to representatives from each of the colleges. Award recipients are: Hashaw Elkins and Philip Harbin (Business and Graduate Studies); Morgan Henriott (BILSA); Emma Cleveland (LAE); and Jessica Symons (EMS). This award is based on a variety of criteria including campus activities and leadership, community involvement, professional development and employment, academic excellence, and the probability of future involvement in our alumni association.
