MSU Graduation

Posted: Updated:

The final graduating class of Minot State University's first century was recognized today in the 99th commencement ceremony.

University President Dr. David Fuller congratulated more than 760 students who received diplomas during the graduation ceremony today.

North Dakota Senator Karen Krebsbach delivered the keynote speech which looked back on Minot State's first 100 years --- as well as the 15 years prior to that when MSU was only a 'dream and vision of the people' in 1898.

(Sen. Karen Krebsbach, Keynote Address, MSU Alumna) "My address is going to be a look back at Minot State. Where it has gone and what it has gone through and hopefully I can give some idea to the people about who we are through this address. I see nothing but an upward swing for Minot State in the future."

The student address was delivered by Honor Graduate Anthony Anderson.

A Finance major, Anderson was active in student government through his academic career and under Anderson's direction, the 'Red & Green' became the highest rated student newspaper in the state.

(Anthony Anderson, 2013 MSU Graduate, Finance Major) "I always tried my best to be involved. I was involved with the Student Government Association and the Rotaract Service Club and I was the editor of the newspaper for one year so trying my best to make a difference for my fellow students."

Here at KX News, we are celebrating two of our own graduates.

Weekend sports anchor Derek Hackett completed his degree in Broadcasting and weekend weather anchor Tim Olson graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Music.
