-Anchorage, AK 

The University of Alaska Anchorage Fall 2018 graduates will walk across the stage this weekend.

The commencement ceremony will take place this Sunday, December 16th at 1 p.m inside the Alaska Airlines Center. The ceremony will honor over 1,000 undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students from the Anchorage campus. 

But before the students cross the stage they'll hear from Katherine Irwin. Irwin is a journalism major, an art minor, a member of Delta Alpha Pi, plus is making history by being UAA's first Deaf commencement speaker!
