MSSU graduates walk for first time since pandemic began
JOPLIN, Mo. – Missouri Southern State University hosted it’s 76th commencement ceremony Saturday. Because of the pandemic, it still wasn’t a ‘traditional’ graduation, but students still got to walk in a different way. The university hosted a walk-through ceremony, with special video presentations and well wishes from the faculty and staff displayed along the way.
“It was great, as I have lots of friends that graduated in December,” MSSU Graduate Colton Smith. “Even last Spring that they didn’t even get the chance to have a graduation. So it’s nice to have it a little personable and get to see some of my professors at an actual graduation.”
A professional photographer was also on hand to record the moment as students were awarded their degrees.
