Three Buffalo Grove residents were among the 1,440 fall 2012 graduates from the University of Kansas. They include:
Leslie Hyman, the daughter of Steven and Linda Hyman. A graduate of Stevenson High School, Leslie received a Bachelor of General Studies in Communication Studies and Business minor.
Thomas Krippes, the son of Kathleen Krippes. A graduate of Stevenson High School, Thomas received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Art.
Ryan Levitt, the son of Paul Levitt and Sheryl Levitt. A graduate of Stevenson High School, he received a Bachelor of Science in Education and Business minor.
Graduate and undergraduate degrees are conferred in December based on work completed during the fall semester. Because KU conducts only one formal commencement each year, many students graduating in the fall or summer terms will return on May 19 for the traditional walk down the Hill into Memorial Stadium for the ceremony.
