MADISON. Wis. - Two Mendota residents, Brooke Carroll and James Carroll, were among 7,000 students who received degrees during the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s spring commencement ceremonies, May 10-11. Both Brooke and James earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the College of Agricultural & Life Science.
Bachelor’s, master’s and law graduates received their degrees May 11 at Camp Randall. The commencement speaker was NFL superstar and former Badger J.J. Watt, who told graduates that the path to their dreams often never goes the way they imagine it will.
“When you figure your dream out, remember it will not be a straight path,” he said. “Stay committed. Never lose sight of what it is you want to accomplish. Don’t be afraid to ask for help along the way, and don’t be afraid to help others along their path.”
