Horner writes to the LOG, “ Had it not been for the professors, the diversity in the courses, and the opportunity to challenge myself academically, I never would have recognized my true potential. I consider these to be more than benefits of my education, but endowments from the entire University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus. I will be taking my 17-year-old son along to the ceremony so he can see what can be achieved when you set your goals high and be open to learn from every opportunity.”
