UW-Whitewater will celebrate the historic 150th graduating class of Warhawks in a virtual ceremony Saturday, Dec. 19, 2020, at 1 p.m. (CST).
The combined event will include May, August and December graduates and will feature three student speakers, university leaders and a keynote speaker.
The ceremony will be presented according to college, each with an estimated run time of approximately one hour, and it will be pre-recorded so viewers can be sure to capture the moment their Warhawk’s name is read aloud and shown on screen. Diplomas will be mailed out by Feb. 15, 2021.
A member of the UW-Whitewater Class of 1992, Melvin is a two-time Paralympics bronze medalist and member of the National Wheelchair Basketball Association Hall of Fame.
A service-oriented leader, Brian graduated with a degree in political science with a legal studies emphasis and a paralegal certificate.
A marketing graduate, Alex served as student body president and mentored a new generation of Warhawks.
A liberal arts major at the Rock County campus, Jaclyn will receive an associate degree.
Engage with graduating students on Facebook, where they share a photo and highlights from their college experience and offer a shoutout to a faculty or staff member who made a difference in their lives. The photos will be available to view Monday, Dec. 14.
Links to each college’s video will be live at 1 p.m. (CST) on Saturday, Dec. 19, 2020.
