Steven DeVilbiss grew up boating, fishing and appreciating Wisconsin’s lakes. Hoping to help future generations enjoy our nation’s natural resources, DeVilbiss accepted a job as a water quality monitoring and assessment senior scientist with the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality. It’s a job UWM had him well prepared for.
“As part of the interview process, they sent me a list of questions and every one of those questions was something that I had dealt with in a course,” DeVilbiss said.
DeVilbiss, who received a master of freshwater sciences & technology degree, was one of six graduates honored during UWM’s May 2016 commencement ceremonies. More than 3,000 students received diplomas.
