DE PERE, Wis. (WFRV) – Graduation is a right of passage for students, faculty and staff.“It is the moment where all of the hard work and dedication and sweat and tears and love has gone into that moment and we want it to be all that it could be,” said Christyn Abaray, Assistant to the President and Secretary to the Board of Trustees for Lawrence University.The pandemic changed the way we celebrate graduates, from last year in hastily put-together social distanced ceremonies for the Class of 2020.
Colleges, like UW Green Bay gave their graduates a similar experience to last year.
“As the graduate is exiting their car they will have their name, their degree and any honorary’s they are graduating with be announced, just as if they were processing through a traditional graduation ceremony,” said Gail Sims-Aubert, the Assistant Vice Chancellor for Inclusivity and Student Affairs at UW Green Bay.
