Spotlight On: Student Achievement

More than 1,500 undergraduate and graduate students received degrees from Marshall University on Saturday, May 7, 2011. Eight of those graduates received supports from WV ATC's College Program for Students with Asperger's Syndrome.

What an achievement! Along with family and friends, we're proud of each for demonstrating the grit and determination it takes to reach that important milestone.

One  graduating student deserves special recognition for his efforts. Ian Gaunt, a native of Anchorage, Alaska, graduated from Marshall University Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Philosophy.

During his senior year, Ian was named Outstanding Philosophy Student of the Year by department faculty.

After two semesters interning at Legal Aid of West Virginia, Ian has chosen law as a career and is currently preparing applications for law schools.

Congratulations, Ian! And good luck in your upcoming life adventures.
