Check out a few of this semester’s graduates and learn more about their Warrior journeys. 

Carrying the Torch through Teaching

After working as a social studies teacher for a decade, WSU alum Tommy Sawyer returned to earn his master’s degree and create better learning experiences for his students—just like his teachers did for him.

Perseverance & Grit through Classes & Motherhood

To be a Warrior means to persevere. Like graduate Zeinab Mohamed, who balanced being a mother and a Nursing student at WSU thanks to the support of her professors.

Stretching into the Role of Business Leader

Soon-to-be WSU alum Cheryl Ferrill returned to college after 40 years to not only switch career paths and earn her degree, but also to chase her passion and open her very own yoga studio in honor of her late mother.

Creating a Community-Wide Impact

WSU is all about improving the world, and graduate Jessica Anderson is living the Warrior Life as a student who’s eager to help others by volunteering in the community and getting involved on campus.

Worldwide Impact Brought Close to Home

WSU students chase their dreams while earning their degrees. Like Kendra Nusbaum, who has a passion for eliminating language barriers in health care and is making a difference locally and globally.

Engineering His Future to Space & Beyond

WSU graduate Stephan Shaw has been curious about how things work since he was a kid. And now with his degree, he has the skills and freedom to build his own career—and grow within it.
