Correction
The May 11 article, "Noteworthy Grads: An international scholar, a legally blind artist and a mother/daughter team," was incorrect is listing the majors for three of the graduates. Mother and daughter Cathy and Lauren Petersen majored in behavioral science, not teacher licensure as reported. By state law there is no undergraduate degree in teacher education except special education. Also, Ron Roe's major is individualized studies: furniture sculpture and design. @Metro regrets these errors.
