Fort Lewis College Winter Commencement will take place on Saturday, December 16 at 10 a.m. in Whalen Gym. Around 170 Skyhawks will bring their undergraduate careers to a close on this exciting day.

The Commencement Speaker will be Dr. Eric Huggins, Fort Lewis College professor of management and winner of the 2017-18 Alice Admire Outstanding Teaching Award.

“The in-class moments that are the best are when I watch a student finally grasp a difficult concept that they have been struggling with,” Dr. Huggins says. “Getting to watch those ‘a-ha’ moments may be the most rewarding part of this job.”

“It’s particularly funny when I’m helping a student, they figure out what they need to do, and then basically tell me to go away so they can get it done on their own. I’ve learned not to take offense at this; being a good teacher means knowing when to help and when not to.”
