On Friday, May 12 the Department of History celebrated undergraduate commencement and departmental awards with a recognition ceremony and reception at the Wisconsin Historical Society. Professor Marla Ramírez announced the departmental awards for undergraduates, and Professor Brandon Bloch and Undergraduate Advisor Scott Burkhardt presented the certificates to awardees. Professor Mary Lou Roberts was selected by the graduating cohort of History majors to deliver the commencement address, and gave an inspiring and heartfelt speech to mark the transition of students to alumni. Professor Gloria Whiting recognized the graduates by name as they walked in front of the stage to receive a commemorative certificate from Professor Daniel Stolz and Undergraduate Advisor Scott Burkhardt. The event was followed by a reception where students gathered with their invited guests and family as well as faculty and staff to celebrate their achievements.
