Local students graduating from Kansas


The names of more than 1,250 candidates for degree from the University of Kansas this fall — representing 50 Kansas counties, 41 other states and territories, and 18 other countries — have been announced by the University Registrar.

Because KU conducts only one formal Commencement ceremony each year, many of these graduates will return Sunday, May 15, 2016, for the university’s spring ceremony. However, some schools and programs conduct fall recognition ceremonies.

Diplomas are officially conferred in January 2016.

Degree candidates include:

Shannon Hall, Fayetteville, bachelor of science in civil engineering.

Kaitlyn Stroud, Fayetteville, master of science in journalism.
