The Organizational Leadership degree was created for members in the community who had already earned an associate degree and wanted to complete a bachelor’s degree at WKU.

“This is the end of a six-year journey for me,” Sheldon said. “I am not sure when this is going to hit me.

“This degree and the knowledge I gained from the classes have already paid off both in my personal and work life,” he said.  “I have worked 20 years in the manufacturing business and with a bachelor’s degree, I cannot wait to see what the next 20 years holds.”

Davis said he would not have been able to complete his degree if not for the professors and the format.

“The degree was completely online.  I have two kids, a wife and a full-time job,” Davis said. “There is no way I could have completed my degree if the program was not online.”

Hughey was ecstatic to have finally gotten to this day. “Dr. John Baker and Dr. Cindy Ehresman have been amazing in teaching these classes.  The classes were heavy in teamwork, which is essential in today’s world,” he said.

“Leaving this program, I now have confidence in myself,” added Hughey.

The graduates were recognized at WKU’s 172nd Commencement on Dec. 15.
