WNMU Graduation Ceremony in Fine Arts Center Theater at 2 p.m. on Dec. 8
Indy Racing Legend Bobby Unser To Give Western New Mexico University Fall 2017 Commencement Address

More than 300 Mustangs will graduate from Western New Mexico University on Friday, Dec. 8, 2017. They walk across the Fine Arts Center Theater stage with their diplomas at the fall commencement convocation at 2 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center Theater.

Western New Mexico University will make it possible for people to watch their loved ones realize their accomplishments from afar by streaming the ceremony live online. Details are available at wnmu.edu.

Indy racing legend Bobby Unser will give the commencement address.

He, the older of the two famous racing brothers, established the family legend many years ago by capturing his first Indy 500 in 1968. He won again in 1975 and 1981.

Unser has compiled one of the most impressive lists of accomplishments in American racing history. He logged 35 Indy car wins, 49 Indy car pole positions, eight 500-mile Indy car victories, four International Race of Champions (IROC) wins, and 13 Pikes Peak Hill Climb wins. The father of four has also served as an industry spokesman, working as ABC’s chief analyst on Indy 500 telecasts.

President of the Associated Students of WNMU, Tim Stillman, will share a response from the graduates.

Originally from Brawley, Calif., Tim Stillman graduated from Brawley Union High School in 2007 and then attended Le Cordon Bleu, College of the Culinary Arts, in Las Vegas, N.V. He worked as a chef on the Las Vegas strip and was inspired to further his education. In 2012, he moved to Silver City and began studying business at Western New Mexico University.

Last spring, Stillman graduated with a bachelor’s in business management, and now he is working toward his master’s in business.
