Meet UIS Graduate Brace Clement

Brace ClementOne of the 1,199 UIS graduates this year is Brace Clement from Chicago. Brace had been a transfer student at UIS for a year when he was called to active duty in the Marines.

Brace went to Iraq and served, and then returned to UIS to finish his degree. He was an officer in the Student Government Association before and after his time in Iraq. Soon, he will begin an internship with U.S. Senator Barack Obama.

According to Brace, “My time at UIS has been one of much personal maturity and academic growth.

“I’ve learned that if you place limitations on yourself, then those limitations will inevitably become your downfall.  Persistence and determination are key in order achieving success!”

UIS congratulates Brace Clement and all of our 2006 graduates.
