WSU graduate wears wedding gown under robe



PULLMAN — With friends and family already gathered for her graduation from Washington State University, Cassie Dotts thought it would be a good time for another ceremony — her wedding.

She married University of Idaho fisheries science graduate Ben Ho in a ceremony on Friday in Moscow, Idaho. Then she received her doctorate in veterinary medicine in Saturday’s WSU graduation in Pullman.

The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports that Dotts wore her cap and gown over her wedding dress for people who wanted to see her as both a graduate and newlywed.

The couple plan to move to Dotts’ native Nevada where she plans to work as a veterinarian in Las Vegas.
