The class of 2010 will produce a number of noteworthy graduates who did great things with their experience at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. In advance of this weekend's commencement, we have profiled just a few of their successes.
Four alumni have been selected to receive honorary degrees from UW–Madison.
Notable graduates: Marci Ybarra — First-generation doctoral student with research to lead to welfare program reform
