I never thought I’d be here’: Layce Mayhew proves herself wrong by earning UNK degree
14 Dec 2023
Come Friday afternoon, Layce Mayhew will officially be a college graduate.
She’s receiving a bachelor’s degree in family science with a minor in behavioral and mental health during the University of Nebraska at Kearney’s winter commencement.
It’s a major accomplishment for the Wood River resident, who’s justifiably proud and equally grateful.
“I never thought I’d be here right now,” she said. “I can tell you that. I never thought I would be in college, let alone graduate. So it’s kind of a huge moment.”
