Teenager and 71-Year-Old Mark Waubonsee’s Youngest and Oldest Graduates

A teenager who simultaneously finished high school and earned an associate degree while maintaining status as an honors student, and a 71-year-old who overcame a lifetime of addiction and is a two-time liver transplant recipient will both walk across the stage and receive their diplomas during Waubonsee Community College’s 2016 Commencement Ceremony on May 14.

While these are just two of the 1,083 degrees being conferred this month, in many ways, the stories of Waubonsee’s youngest and oldest graduates demonstrate the diverse roles of a community college in meeting the varied services and needs for lifelong learning.
