Kami Rae Cooper of Kerrville was among 3,417 graduates who received degrees from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln during a virtual graduation celebration May 9.

Cooper earned a Bachelor of Arts from the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts.

The May graduates are from 54 countries, 45 states and Puerto Rico, and 250 Nebraska communities.

Go Big Grad: A Husker Graduation Celebration featured a "Dream Big" address from John Cook, head coach of Nebraska volleyball, and appearances by special guests. At the end of the event, Chancellor Ronnie Green officially conferred degrees to students. The celebration can be viewed at https://commencement.unl.edu.
