If you have an idea that you genuinely think is good...
For 102 years (1917-2019), UCLA Extension has been one of the largest and most comprehensive continuing education programs in the United States. On August 17, 1917, University Extension opened a permanent location in down town Los Angeles enrolling 1,684 students in 97 classes in its first year. Today, UCLA Extension has over 38,000 students, offering more than 5,000 classes and programs per year.
Last June 30th 2017 UCLA Extension kicked-off its Centennial Celebration at the Certificate Graduation Ceremony at Royce Hall, UCLA Campus, as it recognized over 2,000 graduates completing over 100 professional certificates.
That time, the ceremony honoured Stan Lee with the inaugural Icons of L.A. Award. As a producer, comic book writer, editor, actor, publisher, television personality, and the former president and chairman of Marvel Comics, Lee was a legend, known as the godfather of the modern-day superhero.
Lee co-created some of Marvel’s most recognizable characters including Spider-Man (special mention at minute 1:28), Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, The Fantastic Four, X-Men, The Avengers, Thor, Doctor Strange, Daredevil, and hundreds more fictional characters, introducing complex, naturalistic characters and a thoroughly shared universe into superhero comic books.
Stan Lee's contribution to the world of entertainment is on a par with the great titans in History of other disciplines and activities. Rest in peace.
