Poignant moments: Posthumous degree for Flemming
UW-Green Bay awarded a rare posthumous degree Saturday in recognition of a well-known and accomplished student who passed away after a short battle with leukemia, only months shy of receiving her degree. KaNisha Flemming of Chilton died Jan. 12 at age 22. She was on track to graduate with a double major in Psychology and Human Development and pursue master’s degree studies with the goal of helping troubled teens. The UW-Green Bay faculty voted to award a bachelor’s degree in recognition of Flemming’s academic achievements. We have more on the presentation of that degree to her family in our post.
