#MavGrad 2016: Phyllis McGeath

Monday, December 12, 2016

Phyllis McGeath's oldest son was killed in action while he was serving as a U.S. Marine in Afghanistan. She was determined to finish her degree because her son never got the chance to finish his.

Phyllis is graduating cum laude from The University of Texas at Arlington with a Bachelor of Arts in interdisciplinary studies. She plans to return to UTA for a Master of Social Work in hopes of one day counseling and advocating for people who suffer trauma or grief.
