66 student-athletes set to graduate this weekend

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

On Sunday, Kentucky student-athletes will walk across the stage at Rupp Arena in what will be the defining moment of their college careers.

It won't be a game-winning shot or a long touchdown pass, rather the simple handoff of a piece of paper. But that piece of paper -- their college diploma -- will mark the end of one chapter and the beginning of the rest of their lives.

Sunday is graduation at the University of Kentucky. A total of 66 student-athletes from UK's 22 varsity sports will participate in the 144th commencement ceremonies.

The graduates include several former athletes like Sam Maxwell, Wayne Turner, Johnny Williams and James Whalen, who returned to school to get their degrees.

UK has made some slight changes to this year's commencement ceremonies. Instead of having one large ceremony and separate college ceremonies, the university will host three larger commencement ceremonies.

The first ceremony of the day will honor graduate and professional students and will begin at 9 a.m. The second ceremony of the day recognizes undergraduates from the colleges of Agriculture, Gatton College of Business and Economics, Education, Engineering and Nursing. That ceremony begins at 1 p.m.

The third ceremony recognizing the undergraduates will be held at 6 p.m. in Rupp Arena. The students honored at this ceremony will be from the colleges of Arts and Sciences, Communications and Information Studies, Design, Fine Arts, Health Sciences and Social Work.

Below is a full list of UK's student-athletes graduating Sunday. Kentucky's graduate list includes any student-athlete, past or current, who has graduated or will graduate from December 2010 to August 2011.
