It’s graduation weekend at the University of Kentucky, and that means several Wildcats will be hitting the graduation stage, the final piece of the hard work and dedication put into making their dreams a reality.

Several football Wildcats will hear their names called. Among them include some former Wildcats who left Lexington but came back to pursue a degree. That includes Avery Williamson, as well as DeQuin Evans.

On the basketball side, Brad Calipari and Jonny David will walk across the graduation stage this weekend. Maci Morris, Taylor Murray, Ogechi Anyagaligbo, Nae Nae Cole, LaShae Halsel, and Amanda Paschal will be graduating from the women’s team.

This weekend is a special one for all of the Wildcats walking across the graduation stage, and we at A Sea of Blue salute all of them for their hard work in the classroom and on the field/court.
