On Monday, May 17, 2021, Alverno College hosted its commencement ceremony at American Family Field.

This is the first live commencement since 2019 as last year’s was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year’s ceremony featured the bestowing of a Doctor of Letters degree from Alverno College on Billye Aaron (top photo, center) — educator, broadcaster, philanthropist and wife of the late Hank Aaron.

This year was presided over by Alverno trustee and executive director of the Brewers Community Foundation Cecelia Gore (top photo, left), and Alverno College President Andrea Lee.

This event was also special for the Milwaukee Times as Morgan Ashley Conyers (right photo), the daughter of the late Times founder Nathan Conyers, and Publisher Lynda Jackson Conyers received a Masters in Administrative Leadership during the commencement.
