Putting Student Through

The PST Program was designed to enable WSU graduates to recognize those who have helped make their graduation possible through their support - moral, financial, or otherwise; this is why we are sponsoring an opportunity to honor these special people. Each honoree who attends the program will be presented with a PST degree, pin and diploma.
