Harrison resident Kerri Stidham earned her bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies from WGU Tennessee, and traveled to Las Vegas to receive her diploma at the university’s spring commencement.
WGU Tennessee is an online, nonprofit university formed through a partnership between the state of Tennessee and nationally recognized Western Governors University. Graduates are welcome to attend any of the WGU commencements held around the country.
“We congratulate all of the WGU Tennessee grads who worked so hard to achieve their academic goals, and especially those who were able to travel all the way to Las Vegas to celebrate their accomplishments,” said Dr.
Kimberly K. Estep, chancellor of WGU Tennessee. “We look forward to seeing the positive impact that grads like Kerri will have on their community and Tennessee’s workforce for many years to come.”
In July, the state-endorsed university is celebrating its fifth anniversary. As of today, more than 4,000 students have enrolled in the university, which has conferred nearly 3,000 degrees since launching.
