Commencement, December 2007

Dec. 14 was a happy day at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. You could see it on the faces of master's degree candidates just before the ceremony. This group was to receive graduate degrees in Applied Leadership for Teaching and Learning.

Joey Bellmore, left, received the ceremony's warmest ovation despite not setting foot on stage. His sister, Lynn Bellmore, center, mentioned his name when she addressed the near-capacity Weidner Center crowd as recipient of the Alumni Association's Outstanding Student Award. The award was a thrill, she said, but no more than having Joey in attendance as their family welcomed him home that day from a 15-month tour of duty in Iraq. The Bellmores posed after the ceremony with UW-Green Bay Chancellor Bruce Shepard.
