The University of Louisiana held their summer commencement ceremony today in the convention center and that's when they awarded the family of Brad Wedlock his posthumous doctorate degree and hood.

The convention center was packed with students, family, and friends for this very special day. UL students got their diplomas and their new journey started today.

However, for Brad's family it was one more chapter in his life to celebrate. Our friend and former colleague was awarded his posthumous doctorate degree in education, something he and his family should be very proud of.

While Brad may not have been there with us physically today, we all know that he was there in spirit as he looked down on his BIG day. When his family was given his degree, the crowd gave a huge applause.

Dr. Brad Wedlock, we are so proud of you. You did it!!

Congratulations to all UL graduates on this major accomplishment in your life. Best of luck in the near future.
