Milwaukee’s Hoan Bridge Lighted to Celebrate the UWM Class of 2020

Milwaukee’s iconic Hoan Bridge beamed gold to commend the UWM Class of 2020.

Light the Hoan, an organization dedicated to celebrating all things Milwaukee, and UWM’s media team captured the Panther Gold light show ahead of UWM’s December virtual commencement.

The Light the Hoan project is more than just lights on a bridge, said Michael Hostad, co-founder of Light the Hoan. It’s a way to celebrate with and care for the people of Milwaukee, including its students.

Light the Hoan isn’t the only one finding new ways to honor UWM’s December graduates. The Milwaukee Theatre and the Panther Arena will display a celebratory message to December graduates on their video boards Dec. 16-21.
