Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds set to graduate from ISU this weekend

Posted: Updated:

AMES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa's lieutenant governor, who is set to become Iowa's next governor, is celebrating a different milestone this weekend.

Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds will attain her longstanding goal to get a bachelor's degree when she graduates from Iowa State University on Saturday.

Reynolds will be receiving her bachelor of liberal studies degree with 3 concentrations: political science, business management and communications. Reynolds will participate in the school's fall graduation ceremony that begins at 1:30 p.m. Saturday in the Hilton Coliseum in Ames.

Reynolds' rise to become Iowa's first female governor follows current Gov. Terry Branstad's acceptance of President-elect Donald Trump's offer to become U.S. ambassador to China.
