Peterson Awarded Honorary Degree from Kansas State
President G.P. "Bud" Peterson was awarded an honorary doctorate from his alma mater, Kansas State University, this weekend. He also delivered the commencement address for the university's graduate school ceremony.
Neither Brandon Gipson nor Ola Johnson had set foot on campus before arriving in the summer of 2014 as part of Tech's Challenge Program. The two men graduate this weekend with degrees in computer science and mechanical engineering, respectively.
Many Tech students and those from neighboring universities balance rigorous academics with participation in Tech's Air Force, Army, or Navy ROTC programs. See where these students are headed after graduation.
