For Kupsky family, a commencement tripleheader
A longtime truck driver for Brillion Iron Works, Wes Kupsky has retooled for an IT career with a bachelor’s in Interdisciplinary Studies. His twin daughters, Jennifer and Sarah, were History and Human Development majors, respectively.
They met up Saturday, May 12, at the Kress Events Center, for a rare graduation tripleheader. Classmates at UW-Green Bay, the father and two daughters crossed the stage within a few minutes of each other to receive diplomas at May 2012 commencement.
Twins Jennifer and Sarah, now 23, enrolled right out of Chilton High School and roomed together on campus their first few years. Jennifer is the History major with minors in Business Administration and Humanistic Studies. Sarah majored in Human Development. Wes, 56, is the tech guy, completing 60 credits online through the Adult Degree Program.
Wes and his wife, Carol, have five daughters, and the single ceremony made it convenient for the extended clan. “It was never a plan,” says Wes, “and then one day we compared notes and realized, ‘Hey, we’ll all be graduating in May!”
