Caps Off to our Fellowship and WAVE Students

Thursday, May 7, 2020

Fellowship Class of 2020

Another milestone has been reached for our outstanding Fellowship and WAVE students. It tells them how far they have come and that the journey continues on. It marks both an ending and a beginning. This past semester was filled with immense challenges and change due to the COVID-19 pandemic.To the surprise of no one, our students made the best of the situation and excelled in their coursework by successfully completing their classes online. 

Learning is the key to success and some of the students' greatest lessons came from outside the classroom. The future holds no promises, but rather uncertainty and surprises. What they have learned here at UW will prepare them for both. Congratulations students! Best of luck in all of your future endeavors.

We are pleased to share the future plans of our Fellowship and WAVE students with you.
