Earning a top ranked graduate degree online in five semesters while working full time is especially hard. Earning that degree in the middle of a pandemic when the world is a constant distraction is a bigger challenge than most would want to take on. But, to do all of this with a perfect 4.0 GPA is incredible. Yet, CICS announced not one student with a perfect GPA, but three at the 2021 Summer graduation ceremony on July 24th, 2021.
Paul Faira, LaJoi Shelton Robinson, and Laura Wilkerson were recognized out of the online program for not only completing the program in just 5 semesters, but doing so with a 4.0 GPA. Faira and Shelton also share the 2021 Outstanding Online Graduating Student Award as well.
