Our Recognition and Graduation ceremony originally scheduled for October 30, 2012 has been postponed. This ceremony recognizes the hard work and achievements of our students for the 2011-2012 academic year, and it is our most important event at WSR each year. Stay tuned for the new date!
More than 100 men at Washington State Reformatory will be recognized for their educational achievements. Many have completed “certificate” courses–not-for-credit instruction in subjects ranging from college prep English and Math, music theory, playwriting, business law, and writing for publication. Many others have completed college-level classes that would, if tuition money were available, entitle them to credit at Ohio University and Edmonds Community College. These college classes ranged from basic philosophy, sociology, psychology, and college math to Spanish, calculus, astronomy, and Renaissance poetry. Participation in the UBB program is voluntary, both for the men and for the instructors, who are local professionals and volunteer faculty members from local colleges and universities.
UBB will also have the honor of presenting several associates degrees from Ohio University to the men who’ve earned them, and recognizing men who’ve won other awards, including publication of their work in outside magazines and anthologies.
A UBB graduation is always an inspiring occasion, but this one will be extraordinary!
