Among the graduates were David Trost, who began his quest for a college degree in 1965. He has an associate degree, but wanted to complete one of his life’s goals — a bachelor’s degree. UW-Green Bay’s Adult Degree program helped him achieve his goal, and even a bit earlier than anticipated. Read about him, and find Fox 11 coverage, click here.
After the ceremony, a number of graduates joined the Alumni Association with a celebration at Titletown.
