Joy fills the arena at spring 2017 graduation

Smiles, hugs and tears of joy filled the UW-Panther Arena on Sunday, May 21, as 3,400 students received their UWM diplomas during two ceremonies.

The ceremonies got off to rocking start with the showing of a video of Chancellor Mark Mone and several graduates doing “carpool karaoke.”

Featured speakers at graduation were Kimberley Cy Motley, CEO and founding partner of Motley Legal Services, and Avi Shaked, founder and chief executive officer of Onward Technologies.
