While they were growing up, Juston Demke and Christina Homfeldt’s parents stressed the value of hard work and education.
Their example pushed the siblings to get good grades at West Valley High School near Spokane and become their family’s first college graduates. On May 4, Demke and Homfeldt will celebrate another milestone: They’ll walk across the stage at Beasley Coliseum to accept online MBA degrees from Washington State University’s Carson College of Business.
Homfeldt, 37, finished her coursework in December; Demke, 38, finished in March. But they wanted to graduate on the same day.
“It’s such a great accomplishment, and we did it together,” Homfeldt said. “It’s tough when you take on so much work when you have a job and a family and everything that goes on in adulthood.”
