EAU CLAIRE -- Seniors Jennifer Schobert and Jennifer Sunstrom will deliver the "Response from the Class" at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire winter commencement ceremonies Saturday, Dec. 20.
Schobert, a public communication major and political science minor from Marshall, will speak at the morning ceremony for graduates of the College of Arts and Sciences and those receiving master's degrees. Her speech, titled "A Campus Tour," identifies four elements of the college experience for each letter in "UWEC," including Unlimited boundaries, Work, Excellence and Commencement. These topics reflect the experiences all students have to take with them upon their graduation from UW-Eau Claire, she said.
Schobert works as a resident assistant in Towers Hall and is a member of Mortar Board, Phi Kappa Phi, and the Society of Participating Honor Students. She also serves as president of Pi Sigma Alpha and was awarded the William S. Cody Hall Scholarship this year. After graduation she plans to work in the Madison area and hopes to continue her education in law school next fall.
Sunstrom, a public communication and political science major from Appleton, will deliver her speech, titled "Enjoying the Journey," at the afternoon ceremony for graduates from the College of Business and the College of Professional Studies.
"Students should remember to value life's journeys, not just momentous accomplishments like graduation," Sunstrom said of her message to UW-Eau Claire graduates.
Sunstrom has been a member of the UW-Eau Claire forensics team for more than two years. She plans to work before beginning law school.
Winter commencement ceremonies will begin at 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 20, in Zorn Arena.
