MIAD seniors got an early start on commencement festivities, thanks to a barbecue hosted by MIAD parents Jim and Kathy Whitehurst of Waukesha.

“What I’m doing today is nothing compared to what we’ve been given,” said Jim Whitehurst, as he and his wife cooked and served up hamburgers and veggie burgers with all the trimmings to seniors, faculty and staff on May 6.

“Both of my kids go to MIAD and got great scholarships. It’s the least I could do,” he said.

The Whitehursts are the proud parents of Calvin Whitehurst ’11 (Integrated Studio Arts) and Kaitlyn Whitehurst ’14 (Integrated Studio Arts).

Calvin will graduate with his peers at MIAD’s Commencement ceremony, Saturday, May 14, 11 a.m., at the Milwaukee Public Library’s Centennial Hall.
