In what may be a University of Arizona record, three members of Arizona's Navajo Nation graduated with Ph.D. degrees in engineering during a single commencement ceremony on May 12. All three grew up on the Navajo Reservation in northern Arizona in homes that had no running water or electricity. Navajo, not English, was their first language.
