Brandon Wysong graduates cum laude from Baldwin Wallace University


BEREA – Brandon Wysong of Bradford, a graduate of Bradford High School, has graduated cum laude from Baldwin Wallace University in Berea with a Bachelor of Science in education: early childhood education.

Baldwin Wallace University celebrated the achievements of 307 undergraduate and graduate students at the 2018 BW Fall Commencement exercises in December. Graduates and the assembled family, friends, faculty and staff also heard inspiring words from commencement speaker Matt Underwood, broadcaster for the Cleveland Indians.

Underwood earned a Bachelor of Arts in business administration from BW in 1990 and discovered his talents and career interest working at the university radio station WBWC, 88.3 FM. After graduation, he took a chance on a part-time broadcasting job and had no regrets.

“Whatever choice you make, I say to you, ‘Go!’ – with all your might and all your determination and don’t ever look back,” he said.

Baldwin Wallace University, founded in 1845, was one of the first colleges to admit students without regard to race or gender. An independent, coeducational university of 4,000 students, BW offers coursework in the liberal arts tradition in more than 80 academic areas. Located in Berea, 12 miles from downtown Cleveland, BW offers students the cultural, educational and business advantages of a major metropolitan area.
