Jeff Rahmlow, an IT Systems Specialist at Silver Lake College, will be a speaker at Western Governors University’s commencement ceremony, which is scheduled for July 12 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Rahmlow completed his bachelor’s degree at WGU on June 3. He enrolled full-time at the online university in December 2008. WGU is anticipating that about 1,500 of its roughly 6,000 summer graduates will walk across the stage on commencement day.
As the date for graduation drew closer, Rahmlow applied to be a commencement ceremony speaker. He was chosen are being interviewed and then writing a draft speech and presenting it to a team of WGU personnel.
“The honor of being able to tell my story to thousands of my fellow graduates, family and closest friends … is beyond what I ever imagined,” Rahmlow said.
Rahmlow and his wife, Stacey, and six children live in Two Rivers.
