100 reasons to celebrate as great-grandson graduates


Honoria Huila, 100 years old, had a great seat for Saturday’s UW-Green Bay commencement. She watched from the concourse level, straight up from the stage, as great-grandson Youcef Boubenider received his bachelor’s degree in economics. (He joined her a few minutes after the ceremony for an impromptu family reunion.) Saturday’s event wasn’t the first university commencement Mrs. Huila has attended, not by a long shot. The native of Colombia, who came to the United States in 1972, has seen five previous UW-Green Bay graduation ceremonies involving several generations of the Rincon and Boubenider families.
